March 25th & 26th Parent Note for Remix/Revolution
Hi Remix, Revolution and SPIN Parents!
We finish the month with another one of Jesus’ parables in Matthew 18:21-35. Jesus tells the story of a servant who likes to live it up—even though he’s weighed down by MILLIONS of dollars in debt! This servant gets a big break when the king forgives his debt. You’d think he’s got it made—until he finds a man who owes him a few bucks. You’d think he’d pay it forward and cancel the debt, but that’s not what happened. He gets caught when he didn’t forgive others like the king forgave him.
Bottom Line: Since God forgave you, you should forgive others. Forgiveness is full circle. God chose to forgive us when we had a huge debt against Him because of our sin. Because we are forgiven of so much, when others hurt us, we should respond with forgiveness in return. We pray that kids will start to realize how they can forgive people in their life.
Our memory verse for March comes from Colossians 3:13, NLT:
“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
Make sure to check out the rest of our resource on the Kids' Time Website. We have weekly devotionals you can do along with your child, to dance and sing along with the worship songs, watch Bible story videos and much more!
We are a ministry run by volunteers. We have so much fun together teaching our kids how much Jesus loves them. We would love for you to join our team! Please contact Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and she will start the conversation with you about finding a good fit and how to get started. You are also welcome to come shadow a service to see what we’re all about!
Let know if you have any questions or concerns. I’d love to hear from you!
