Our Bible story for elementary students this week was from the book of MATTHEW 5:1-2; 23-24 –
Jesus Teaches on Forgiveness.
SAY THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Take the first step to forgive others.
“Put up with one another. Forgive one another if you are holding
something against someone. Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you.”
COLOSSIANS 3:13, NIrV
DO THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
God says that loving others means making the first move. Whether you need to be forgiven or whether you need to forgive, if something is wrong between you and someone else, you need to take a step to make things right. You might even say that choosing to make peace with others through forgiveness is one of the best gifts you can give God! Pray that God will help you make the first move to forgive.
DECIDING THAT SOMEONE WHO HAS WRONGED YOU DOESN’T PAY.
