2d. Forgive



"Forgive us our trespasses 

as we forgive those 

who trespass against us."

What does that mean?

In this instance, trespasses mean sins. 

God forgives us 

IF 

we forgive others.

What??  Why??

This is the second part of the 

"R" part of I PRAY

-------------------

Remember that your heart 

is like a garden for God's Spirit? 

If your garden is full of rocks of 

un-forgiveness, 

you are not grounded in love.


Read this story about Malcom Tent

Do you carry rocks in your heart? 

--------------------------------------------

Read this skit with a parent or another person.


Chapel talk after the Forgiveness Skit:


Can you let go of some rocks?

Forgiveness is really hard!

It feels like some people don't deserve to be forgiven.

But, God loves us SOOOOOOOO much, 

He doesn't want us to be 

separated from Him.  

At all.

So, we don't forgive others 

because they deserve it.

Wait!  What?

None of us deserve His forgiveness.

We forgive because 

Jesus loves us 

and 

we love Jesus.

---------------------------------------

When you pray, ask the Lord 

if you have any rocks that are in your heart.  

Then...

Forgive and let them go!
