LESSON 3: Forgive Others

Verse link: Colossians 3:13 – … Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

The Point: God’s love forgives

Bible story: The parable of the unforgiving servant


During the week ask your child if they can remember The Point or the Verse form Sunday’s lesson.

Ask these questions:

  1. Why should we forgive others?
  2. How do you think forgiveness shows God’s love?
  3. If you hold on to anger instead of forgiving, what kind of attitude do you think you will start to show?

Song of the week: You forgive me – Group Publishing


Pray together:

God, thank You for love that forgives. Thank you that Jesus gave himself so that we can be forgiven. Help us then also to forgive others. Even when we are hurt or mad or sad – remind us to talk to you, to breathe and let go of all those bad feelings, so that when other people look at us they can see your love. In your strength we can love like you.
[Add thanks and prayer requests for others.]

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
