Guilt and shame is something everyone faces when they sin and do wrong. Especially when you’re a kid and you’ve done a lot of bad things, that guilt and shame can really add up and make you feel worthless.
Many kids have even found themselves hearing things like, “I’m so
disappointed in you” or “You’re such a bad kid!” After a while, those things really cause them to feel unloved and uncared for.
In this week’s Bible Story, the children learned from the story of Zacchaeus encountering Jesus. They recognized that Jesus truly cares about them and has good plans for their lives – no matter how “bad” they may be.
The children will learned that when they decide to follow God’s plans for their lives and do what’s right, EVERYTHING changes!
