Read Luke 19:7 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: When you’re watching you’re a competition, do you like to root for the favorite or the underdog?
Parent Note: Underdogs are the teams or people expected to lose the competition. Much like we hope that, against all odds, the underdogs will win, we hope that sinners will be forgiven. That’s the beauty of Jesus! He loves us, no matter what we’ve done. While underdogs may not always win, sinners who ask for forgiveness are always forgiven.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for loving me even as a sinner.
I know that Your forgiveness is always there.
Please help me to abandon my sin and turn to You.
We ask this in Jesus’s name, Amen.
