The cultivation of forgiveness in everyday life is so important for all of us, especially children. We need a plan for dealing with our mistakes. Our conversations within our family normally go a little like this:
Hey, are any of us perfect? No.
Am I perfect? No. Do I make mistakes, too? Yes!
Who’s perfect? Only God.
So what do we do when we make a mistake? Apologise and fix it.
What does the other person do? Forgive them quickly – don’t stay angry and keep punishing them.
How do you feel when you’re forgiven? Better.
What sort of family do we want to be and what is it that you’re working on? I want a kind, loving family and I’m working on patience.
Well done, sweet one.
Then I also model being the one apologising and being forgiven when I make mistakes – and it actually feels so good!
How does this work? Once you purchase this poster you will receive an email with an A4 PDF and a 5×7 image for download.
Print in colour on thick paper if possible and frame in a simple white frame for the best visual result. I buy white frames from IKEA and have them home delivered.
