March on the Rooftop Week 3

Categories: Crosstown Kids

This week, we are finishing up in Luke by revisiting the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:21-32.  Not everyone in the story was happy about the son coming home, or the fact that the father threw a big party for him!  The older brother who had obeyed his father all along was found sulking during the party because he wasn’t celebrated for following the rules.  His father pleaded with him to forgive. Our bottom line this week:  When you don’t forgive, you miss out.  Forgiveness is deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay. Our memory verse is from Colossians 3:13, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.  Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
I encourage you to spend some time with the devotions we send home with your child on Sunday mornings.  If you didn’t get one, visit our website where you’ll find a devotion that coincides with our discussion on the Rooftop.
*****KIDS – don’t forget your Bibles on Sunday morning!*****
