Memory Verse

“Put up with each other, and forgive anyone who does you wrong, just as Christ has forgiven you.”

Audio Icon   Colossians 3:13



In this episode, Liz does everything he can to win a contest with his friends — even cheating. When he loses, he has to learn a lesson on forgiveness.

It’s a lot easier to say that you forgive someone than to actually do it. If you “forgive” a friend but keep reminding them about what they did, that’s not forgiving. If you forgive and feel proud of yourself for being so kind, that’s not forgiving. Our model for forgiveness should be God. When we trust that Christ died for our sins and rose again, God forgives us completely and forever. In fact, after he forgives us, he doesn’t even see our sin anymore! 2 Corinthians 5:21 says that when God looks at us, he sees us as being as righteous as Jesus Christ! Praise God!
