Our Christian Value This Term Is...FORGIVENESS!

Forgiveness is fundamental to the character of God. Throughout the Bible, God is described as slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin (Numbers 14:18).

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this

happens we need to be able to forgive. Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible. 

Talk together about:

• A time when you needed to say sorry

• A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had

• A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you

• How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you
