Forgiveness

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say
sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive.
Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.
Talk together about:
• A time when you needed to say sorry
• A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had
• A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you
• How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you
