Jesus models what forgiveness should look like in our lives.

Key Points:

  • Forgiveness means you choose not to pay someone back when they hurt you.
  • We should forgive because Jesus forgives us. Colossians 3:13
  • The best friends know how to forgive.

Memory Verse:

Proverbs 17:9 (NCV) Whoever forgives someone’s sin makes a friend, but gossiping about the sin breaks up friendships.
