Saying sorry to God for doing
things that make Him sad.
You Will Need:
Some dark coloured construction/sugar paper, some chalk & an eraser
Isaiah Chapter 30 verse 15:
You will find peace and rest when you turn away from your sins and depend on me.
You will receive the strength you need when you stay calm and trust in me.
God wants us to say sorry for all the wrong things we do.
What we mean by that is: all those things that make God sad like being rude, telling lies, not sharing or taking something that isn’t ours. The Bible calls this Sin.
Some people say they’ve never done anything wrong! But the truth is – we all do, and we need to say sorry for those things – and mean it.
Ponder some more:
Sometimes it’s really clear when we’ve done something wrong.
Sometimes it isn’t so clear:
Like not doing anything when we saw someone needed help.
Or, it can be making something else more important than God.
When we say sorry and mean it, God promises to forgive.
He chooses not to remember it ever again!
What would you like to say sorry for today? (You don’t have to say it out loud – unless you need to say sorry to a person too!)
Use the chalk to scribble on the paper.
Make it look really messy!
As you scribble, ask God to remind you what you need to say sorry for.
As you remember those things, say sorry to God.
Then rub out the chalk with the eraser, and say thank you to God for forgiving you.
