Memory Verse: "You are God's chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don't be proud. Be gentle and patient." Colossians 3:12 NIrV
Building Character for Kids Challenge: Explain to your kiddo(s) that mercy is showing compassion or forgiveness to someone who maybe does not deserve it. Has anyone ever shown you mercy? Have you deserved to be punished but someone has chosen to forgive you instead? How does it feel to be shown mercy? How do you feel when you give someone else the benefit of the doubt and show them mercy as well? Explain how God has shown us mercy by dying on the cross to forgive us of our sins. What a HUGE sacrifice that we do not deserve.
