Read Matthew 26:25 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Who in your life would you be most surprised to find out had betrayed you?
Parent Note: It is easy to think that people we don't like or people who don't like us could betray us, but we never suspect the people close to us. Jesus was not surprised, but Judas' fellow disciples were shocked to learn that he would do something so horrible to Jesus.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You for forgiving me.
Even when I mess up, You are there to show me mercy.
Help me to show others mercy like Jesus does.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
