Hands-on Faith for Families
Week of February 10, 2014

Theme: God's Comfort

God Comforts Us by Erasing Sin

Play: Take turns making a mean face at another person. Then have the second person “erase” the other person’s meanness with an imaginary eraser as the mean face turns into a smile.

Talk: When we hurt a person we love, we often wish we hadn’t done it. We mourn or feel awful about what we did. Then we say we’re sorry and ask that person’s forgiveness. When the person forgives us, it is like he or she is “erasing” our mean action. Just like we sometimes hurt the people we love, we also hurt God when we sin. But when we confess our sins to God, He forgives us through Jesus (1 John 1:9). We mourn our sin and then find comfort in Jesus as He “erases” the sin from His memory (Hebrews 8:12). Do you need to ask God to forgive you for something today? He has a big eraser!

Pray: Ask God to help you remember to seek His forgiveness whenever you sin.
