LESSON 17 | God is Forgiving

Bible Basis: Jonah 1:1 – 3:10

Bible Verse: 1 John 1:9: “But God is faithful and fair. If we admit that we have sinned, He will forgive us our sins. He will forgive every wrong thing we have done. He will make us pure.”

Resource: The Beginner Bible

Why do you think Jonah disobeyed God the first time God told him to go to Nineveh? (He didn’t like the people of Nineveh, and he didn’t think they deserved to be forgiven.)

When was the last time you disobeyed God or your parents? Did you ask for forgiveness?

What do you think it was like for Jonah to live inside a fish for three days?

Why do you think God forgives us when we disobey? Why do you think God wants us to forgive others? (Because God loves us and he wants what’s best for us. God knows that when we don’t forgive each other, it only hurts our own hearts. When we forgive others, we’re showing them God’s love. Forgiveness helps us to live at peace with one another.)
