Memory Verse

“Whoever serves me must follow me.”

Audio Icon   John 12:26



In this episode, Liz and his friends struggle with some other students at their new school. But they remember to act like Jesus would - they forgive. Following Jesus’ example means forgiving other people even when it’s hard. Could you forgive a person who hurt you? How do you forgive someone who has hurt you? Forgiveness is possible only by the power of God at work in your heart. It is only possible when you see that Jesus has already forgiven you.

Want to dig deeper about justice-seeking and forgiveness? Read Matthew 6:14-15, Luke 6:37 and Colossians 3:13


Forgiving others doesn’t mean that what they did was OK. It means that you won’t hold it against them anymore. With your family, think about what forgiveness looks like in the following situations. First, act out what not forgiving looks like. Then act it out again to show what forgiving does look like.

  • Someone broke your favorite toy
  • Someone called you a name
  • Someone cheats at a game
  • Someone takes something of yours
  • You did something that you feel bad about (you need to forgive yourself)
