The Wheat and the Chaff
Separating wheat from the chaff is a common agricultural practice that is used to prepare grains for consumption. In cereals like rice, barley, oats and wheat, the grain is surrounded by a dry husk. Before the grain can be used, the husks (or chaff) must be removed. Separating the wheat from the chaff has become a common cliché to describe the practice of distinguishing the wanted from the unwanted, the valuable from the relatively valueless.
In the Wheat and the Chaff lesson, we invite Cottage Meeting hostesses to select true principles that are useful and valuable to America while helping the participants identify the useless or worthless material that can be discarded. These principles may apply to freedom, history, the Constitution, the economy or other relevant topics.
There are several excellent video presentations available that explain the US Constitution from the viewpoint of the Founding Fathers. Cottage Meeting hostesses may want to review and share these videos during their neighborhood gatherings. It may be necessary to schedule several weeks of lessons to provide an in-depth discussion about the US Constitution.
