Memory Verse:  Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”… Luke 23:34

Reading: Luke 23:26-46 (You can read a from a children’s Bible for better understanding according to what age group you’re teaching).

Lesson: Jesus tells us that we are to forgive others just like He forgave us on the cross. Jesus died on the cross for all the bad things we do and mistakes we make. Those bad things are called sin. Sin is when we don’t obey God’s commands. Sin hurts God and makes Him very sad because when we sin it separates us from God. God loves us so much He wants us to live in Heaven with Him. Jesus died on the cross to forgive us for all our sins so we could live in Heaven forever with Him. Even though Jesus was hurt on the cross He still forgives us and loves us.  He wants us to do the same to others. He wants us to forgive people even when they hurt us.

Discussion Questions:

Has someone ever hurt you?

Have they hurt your feelings? Made you angry?

Is it easy to forgive someone when they’ve hurt you?

How can you forgive someone who has hurt you?

Print out the Jesus face sheet and have the children color Jesus face with crayons and cut it out.  Then using the hot glue gun (only adults should use this!), attach the body to the card stock and the head to the body like seen below. The kids can color the cross if they want or you could use colored cardstock.
