Today we’re going to learn about sin. Sin is when we do things our way instead of God’s way. Did you know that God has a certain way he wants us to live? He does and he gives us the Bible to know how to do it! God gives us the rules and our job is to obey them. Sounds easy enough. Well, think about your day today. Did you lose your cool and yell or hit your sibling for taking your stuff? Did you disobey your parents by not taking out the trash? Did you sneak a cookie when your Mom said no dessert? All of those examples are sinful because they go against what God wants for us. He wants us to obey our parents, to be kind to our siblings and not take stuff that doesn’t belong to us. So, maybe you haven’t done those things today but you probably have in the past. Well, here’s the good news. We can beat sin in our lives because of Jesus! Jesus came to defeat sin by dying on the cross to pay for our sins. So, with Jesus, we have the ability to say “No” to sin and “Yes” to living for God. Kids, watch out for sin in your life. Do things God’s way and you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble!
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
