Christian Bible Study for Children following God's path!written and illustrated by Gramma Cherbear
The Bible Says:
"Put up with each other.
Forgive the things you are holding against one another.
Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you."
Repair and Renew!
Gramma's Critters have learned a new lesson this week. She is helping them see that things are not so bad. She is happy they cleaned her Den. She has shown them how to mend what is broken. A few stitches on her favorite chair makes it almost good as new. Some glue to the teapot and cups and they will again be used for visitors to the Den. Gramma Cherbear knows life is too wonderful to spend time being angry over the misdeeds of others.
It is good to learn how to make good from bad. Looking to see what we can do to make things better will help our hearts heal. Keeping our minds on good things will keep us happier and healthier too! When you feel yourself getting red hot with anger, remember to talk to God about the problem. Ask Him to show you what is good! It may be your time to show someone else the right way to act.
When others mistreat you it's easy to get more upset than you need to be. Stay calm and tell God how you feel. Praying and asking God to comfort you and understand why people are sometimes unkind will help you. Try to look at the bright side. See what good you can make of it. Maybe you can learn how to repair something. Forgiving and forgetting will make you a better friend. You may learn more about why you should share God's love with others. God will help repair your damaged heart and make you happy again.
It is very important we learn how to forgive. God forgives and forgets us, no matter what we do. We forget that we hurt God when we sin in any way. He does not get angry. He understands and leads us back to doing what is right. Staying mad can hurt us in many ways. God wants us to be quick to forgive others. He forgave us quickly; we need to do the same for ourselves and others.
