Memory Verse

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

Audio Icon   Ephesians 4:32



In this episode, Liz and Spike try to get back at Teddy for ruining their science project. But the more they try, the more trouble it causes. Liz finally learns that it’s better to forgive than to get revenge.

The memory verse says that we are to forgive others as God forgave us. What did God forgive us for? He forgave us for disobeying him. All of us are sinners (Romans 3:23), even you! But even before we were born, God sent his son, Jesus, to die on the cross for those sins. He was preparing to forgive our sins before we even sinned!

Now God is telling us that he wants us to forgive others the same way. He wants us to forgive before the people we’re forgiving even say they’re sorry. He wants us to forgive even if those people aren’t sorry! The only way we can do that is to remember that it’s exactly the way he forgave us.

Want to dig deeper and learn about forgiveness? Check out Psalm 103:12, Ephesians 1:7, and Hebrews 10:17.


Get a piece of paper and crayons or colored pencils and create a way in words or pictures to remind you of what Jesus has done for you. Tape it in a place you’ll see every day. When you see it, remember that you’re supposed to forgive others just as he forgave you.
