This week’s devotional:
What a Mess!
When we read our Bible, we discover that God spends a good amount of His time-saving people. Usually, this saving is from themselves. Humans are not perfect, and we mess up a lot. Think of a time you have messed up and had to ask for forgiveness from your parents. Confession is always the right thing to do, and because you have loving parents, they forgive you and help you learn through it.
God is the best kind of parent. Your heavenly Father always forgives you when you come and repent. Even when you get into trouble, if you ask Him for His help, He will help you. Forgiveness is a big part of God’s plan. He knows that humans mess up. That’s why He sent His Son, Jesus. Jesus saves people from sin.
Whenever you mess up, remember it is never too late to ask for forgiveness. God will forgive you, help you, and save you.
* Only the Lord saves!*

This week: (Act it Out!)
Choose one of these song titles:
1. “God, I’m Sorry”
2. “Dear God, Save Me”
3. “The Forgiveness Rap”
Spend some time with your family and create lyrics and a melody for this song. You can make it fun or serious. And then sing it altogether.
Everyone messes up sometimes. But it is important to repent and say, “I’m sorry.”
Always promise to listen to each other, be understanding, and forgive.
