Think about a time someone has done something against you.

Who forgives their sins?

Read the memory verse.

Why should you forgive people who do things that hurt you?


Draw a cross. Inside the cross, write things you have done wrong (your sins). Jesus paid for your sins, so color in your cross to show that your sins are taken away.

Draw a heart next to the cross. Inside the heart, write something you need to forgive someone for. Color in the heart to show that you forgive out of love.
