Our Bible story on Sunday for 252 Elementary was from the book of
LUKE 15:21-32 –
The Prodigal Son

SAY THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
When you don’t forgive, you miss out.

REMEMBER THIS:
“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

BED TIME
It’s true that forgiveness is hard. But forgiving someone isn’t just about them, it’s about you, too! When you forgive, you can have peace. Forgiveness sets both you and the other person free. Are you missing out on something right now that you could change through forgiveness? Pray that God would show you any place in your life where you’re holding onto anger and help you forgive.

LIFE APP-
FORGIVENESS:
DECIDING THAT SOMEONE WHO HAS WRONGED YOU DOESN’T PAY.
