REVIEW QUESTIONS

1. Why did Mike’s joke turn out to be mean and hurtful instead
of funny?
It was selfish to do something just because he thought it was funny. He didn’t think of how it would keep Alyssa from doing what she needed to do.
2. What did Mike realize he needed to do to repent and have a good relationship with his friends?
Mike stopped hiding and took responsibility. Mike asked for forgiveness. Mike got rid of all of the jokes that hurt his friends and only kept jokes that would be funny for everyone.
3. In the Bible story, what did Jesus tell the woman caught in
sin to do?
Go, and sin no more.
4. Why is it important to repent from sin when you pray to God?
Sin hurts God’s heart and separates your heart from Him. When you repent, He will forgive you, make your heart right, and give you strength to stop sinning.

ACTION QUESTIONS

week to make things right with the person you have hurt?
I
can talk to God and repent from hurting others. I can ask that person to forgive me. I can stop making hurtful choices.

I will ask God to forgive me. I will ask God to make me strong to stop doing the bad choice. I will try my best to stop doing the bad choice. I will ask God what the good choice is instead of doing the bad choice.

 

4. Pray

Ask the children to share things they’d like to pray about. Write your prayer request so you can continue to pray for your family during the week. Pray together, give them a chance to lead the prayer if they want to. Not sure what to pray?
