Theme: Forgiveness

Have you ever needed to forgive someone else? Was it really hard to do? Jesus knows how difficult it is for us to forgive each other so he told a story to help us understand the importance of forgiving each other. Read Jesus’ story about forgiveness in Matthew 18:21-35.

Listen and read the story of Bible News: Esther (part 1)


  • Tell personal stories of when you have needed to forgive someone or when someone forgave you.
  • Read Psalm 51 out loud together.
  • Talk about the effects of not forgiving someone and keeping anger bottled up inside.

    Colossians 3:13-15

    Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.
