Deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn't have to pay
W E E K 1
Bottom Line: Everyone needs forgiveness. We can’t escape it. At some point, even if what we did was unintentional, we’ll hurt someone we know. We’ll need to apologize, and hopefully, we’ll receive that person’s forgiveness. As much as others need forgiveness, we need it too. When we have this perspective, it levels the playing field. We get the chance to participate in offering forgiveness that can make things right with others. Because we need forgiveness, we should be willing to forgive people in our lives too.
W E E K 2
Bottom Line: When you forgive others, it can change them. When God forgives us, it changes us from the inside out. The same can be true when you forgive others. You never know what can happen when you take the first step toward forgiveness. When you decide to reach out and offer forgiveness, it can change the way the other person sees you, the situation, and the impact of their actions.
W E E K 3
Bottom Line: Forgive others because God forgives you. God’s love for us is huge. That love drives God to forgive us when we do something wrong. God can help us to forgive people in our life too. When we realize how much God has forgiven us, we can turn around and forgive people who might hurt us. This might be difficult, but God can give us the help we need to love others and show forgiveness.
W E E K 4
Bottom Line: God will always forgive you. Jesus’ parable is such an amazing reminder of God’s love. God’s grace and forgiveness is so deep and wide. When we come to God and ask for forgiveness, God is there waiting with open arms, offering unfailing love that restores the relationship we’ve broken. This is all possible because of Jesus. We pray that every kid understands what Jesus did for them and trusts God with their whole life.
