As these verses show, even disciples of Jesus Christ sometimes have trouble forgiving one another. Consider how you will help the children understand the Lord’s command “to forgive all.” (Clarify that forgiving does not mean allowing people to hurt us; they should always tell a trusted adult if someone hurts them.)
Give the children each a quiz
and a pencil.
This is a quiz about forgiveness. All the questions can be answered yes or no.
