Greetings, friends of Reign Forest!
Although we couldn’t meet for our face-to-face program, I wanted to give you an opportunity to do a quick home self-study for the lesson that would have been shared on March 22, 2020. The following summary references the bible story that would have been told. Please take some time to share the story with your child(ren) and encourage them to continue to memorize God’s word through our Bible Memory Verse Challenge. Please let me know if you have any questions.
March Theme: “D.I.Y. Forgiveness is up to you”
In Luke 15:11-24, Jesus shares a parable to help people understand God’s amazing grace and forgiveness. A son came to his father and asked for his share of the inheritance. This broke the father’s heart, but he went ahead and gave the son what he wanted. The son wasted every last penny and hit rock bottom. He decided to go home to his father and ask for forgiveness. The father was waiting with arms open wide and ready to have his son home.
Bottom Line: Everyone needs to be forgiven. Everyone at some point will do something to hurt another person, and we’ve all done something that goes against what God wants for us. We all need forgiveness. Thankfully, through Jesus, God offers forgiveness no matter what we’ve done.
Memory Verse: Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you (Ephesians 4:32, NLT).
Blessings to you and your family for good health and safety,
