This Week in Motion Elementary :: I need to ask for forgiveness.

June series: Forgiveness can be tricky to understand and even harder to show in real life.

We’re told to show kindness and compassion to others, and in doing so, we can experience real life

I need to ask for forgiveness.
Forgive each other Ephesians 4:32

This week, in Ephesians 4:32, we learn to be kind and forgive one another. When we make mistakes and hurt someone, it’s important to say we’re sorry and ask for forgiveness. By apologizing and seeking forgiveness, we show love and respect to others, just as God does for us.  

Family Discussion Questions:

  1. Why do you think it’s important to ask for forgiveness when we hurt someone?
  2. How can we show kindness and forgiveness to others, even when they make mistakes?
  3. What does it mean to forgive someone, “just as God forgave you”?

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning time: As your kid starts their day, share an example of a time when you’ve asked someone to forgive you. Reread Ephesians 4:32 together. 
  • Mealtime: At a meal this week, talk about ways you can live for God. Ask, “What are some things we can do, as a family, to show God’s forgiveness daily?” 
  • Drive Time: While on the go, ask your kid to talk about ways they can show God’s love and forgiveness to others at home, with their friends, and in their community.
  • Bedtime: Pray for each other: “God, help us to notice when we’ve hurt someone and give us the courage to ask for their forgiveness, just as you forgave us.”
