Learning Question: Why do Christians believe that forgiveness is important?


How hard can it be to forgive others? What is it like to be forgiven?

 

1. Finish these sentences in your own words:

  • I realise I have made a mistake when…
  • It can be hard to say sorry when…
  • It can be hard to forgive when…

 

2. Make a few notes or create a mind-map on what forgiveness means to you.

 

3. Read ‘The Prodigal Son’ parable and re-watch BBC Video.

 

4. Have a go at answering these questions:

 

  • Think about the section of the story where the prodigal son returns. What do you consider to be the three most important aspects of this part of the story?
  • Reflect on times you may have acted similarly to the father and the prodigal son at the end of this parable. Express thoughtfully how you felt and briefly compare the feelings of forgiving others and seeking forgiveness. Can you think of a wider world situation of forgiveness being needed and/or given?
  • Why do you think Christians believe that it is important to forgive others? Use your interpretation of the father’s words in verse 32.
  • Finally, what does this parable teach Christians about God? Think about what the commentator says at the end of the clip.

 

5. Review your sentences from Part 1 and your notes/mind-map from Part 2. Would you update any of these considering what you have thought about today?
