Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
Forgiveness is HARD. There’s nothing easy about letting things go instead of seeking revenge. Because forgiveness is giving someone something they don’t deserve. That’s when we have to be reminded of what Jesus has done for us. We’ve been forgiven. Not because we deserved it but because we are loved by a perfect God. So the next time someone hurts you and your instinct is to hurt them back, remember what Jesus did for you. Because the story of Jesus changes how I forgive others.
