Work in Progress: Redo Rewrite Restore
This Month’s Memory Verse:
“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
This Month’s Virtue:
Forgiveness—deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay
The Story of the Lost Son Luke 15:11-32
We end the month in Luke 15:11-32, when Jesus shared a parable to help people understand God’s amazing grace and forgiveness. A son came to his father and asked for his share of the inheritance. This broke the father’s heart, but he went ahead and gave the son what he wanted. The son wasted all of the money and hit rock bottom. That’s when he decided to go home to his father and ask for forgiveness. The father welcomed him home with open arms and threw a giant party for him. His older brother, on the other hand, chose not to forgive and became angry with his brother. He not only missed out on a party, but he also missed out on rebuilding a relationship with his brother.
I can trust God no matter what.
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.
