Calvary Students – Parent Resource – April 19
Well, we’ve got week three in the books and what a great lesson it was. To remind you, we’re almost done with our four-week journey to discover what Jesus had to say about forgiveness. It’s been an awesome time.
This week, the lesson was entitled “Forgive Without Limits,” and it focused on helping students understand that we can’t put any limits on our forgiveness; there is never a moment when we can say, “enough forgiveness.” We also challenged our students to accept that the emotional turmoil caused by forgiving people who repeatedly hurt them makes them more Christ-like than they know.
We looked at the following Scripture passages:
You’ll enjoy reading these great scriptures and seeing how forgiveness truly does start with Jesus.
Next Steps . . .
During the next week as you have time to talk with your teen, consider asking the following questions:
- What was the one thing that you remember from your Bible study time. Why did it stand out to you like it did?
- Is there one person in your life who seems to always be hurting your feelings, whether intentionally or not? How do you handle that? Is there something we can do to talk about that relationship?
Parent Resource of the Week:
Extracurricular activities and the church – what kind of relationship do these have? There are so many options for our students to be engaged in activities that pull for their time and attention. We have heard so many arguments on both sides of the debate of “No Sports on Sundays” and the “Live Missionally On Your Team”. Here is an article that our team came across this week. It is written by a mother of three high-level athletes (one of which played in the NHL). I think her perspective is spot on. Take a few minutes today and read this great challenge – “Spring Sports and Sunday Church”.
