Teaching Children The Mercy of God

Teaching Children The Mercy of God

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The mercy of God is an important component of human life. Let’s look at the story of John and his mum as we seek to understand the mercy of God.

John’s heart boomed in his chest as he stood looking at his mother. He didn’t mean to break the five bottles of freshly pressed orange juice meant for the women’s meeting at church tomorrow. One of the bottles sat on the bread wrapper and as he pulled the bread out from the fridge, disaster struck.

“I am sorry, mummy,” he said.

He waited for his punishment. He couldn’t meet her eyes as she looked long and hard at him.

“It’s okay” she said. “Just clean it up.”

That was it. He couldn’t believe his ears. Instantly, he got the mop and bucket and began to clean.

Minutes later, mummy hears Loveth crying. John had hit her for removing one of the tires from his toy car. It was a mistake.

“But I didn’t do anything to you when you broke the bottles of juice?”

John acted like the wicked servant in Matt. 18: 21-35 as told by Jesus.

The wicked servant refused to be merciful to his fellow servant after receiving mercy from his master. He owed his master more, compared to what his fellow servant owed him.

Much like John’s mistake compared to his sister’s. He could have just told Loveth “It’s okay. Just fix it.” Much like mummy said to him.

Why do you think John and the servant in the story acted as they did? They did so because they weren’t grateful for the mercy they received. They forgot that their offense was worth punishing for but who they offended decided they were worth not punishing.

The story teaches us two things:

Firstly, we should be grateful for God’s mercy because we’ve all come short of mercy. And it’s only through Jesus’ death on the cross that we have the right to receive mercy from God.

Secondly, as we have received this mercy, we are meant to reciprocate it to others ‘You should have mercy on your fellow-servant, just as I had mercy on you.’ Matt. 18:33.

What do you think mommy would do to John? Well, the master in the story was angry when he found out what happened and had the wicked servant thrown into jail until he could pay back what he owed Matt. 18: 34.

Jesus said that is how God will deal with us if we don’t have mercy on others.

Who are you going to forgive today?

Prayer:
Dear God, I thank you for showing me mercy. Amen

Action point:
Continually ask God to help you to do this continually.

Parents:
My children are merciful. As they receive mercy from God, they give mercy out to others in Jesus name. Thank you, Lord.

Declaration:
My children show mercy. They are considerate and loving to their neighbours.

This Is When You Should Consider A Break-Up

This Is When You Should Consider A Break-Up

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Today I will share with you some helpful hints. A broken heart for a moment is better than a broken heart for life. You may want to carefully and prayerfully weigh your options and make your decision. Remember we make decisions and the decisions eventually make us.

1. Consider your future and destiny
It is very important in falling in love to consider the future. Can you see him/her in the picture of your future? Is there destiny alignment? Are there things in destiny to accomplish together?

2. Consider your genotype
For example, AS and AS is a no-go area. Don’t fall in love before finding out your genotype. A few days of pain and a broken heart is far better than a lifetime of pain and regret.

3. If he/she is an unrepentant sinner
If he/she is an unbeliever or a believer who still enjoys habitual sin and is unrepentant. The things of God are taken with levity and he/she is making no efforts to draw closer to God. He or she does not go to church. A breakup may save you from a regretful future.

4. If there are a lot of character flaws
Nobody is perfect but there are some character flaws that cannot be overlooked. If he or she drinks, smokes, womanizes, is a fraudster or engages in any form of violence, a break may be a better option.

5. If love is not genuine
If the love is lopsided and he or she only loves you for what he can get from you a breakup is a better option. There is no genuine basis for the relationship.

6. If there is a major parental and family disapproval
If prayers, efforts, and all possible options have been explored and yet there is strong parental disapproval despite prayers, you may want to consider a breakup. It may happen to be direction in the long run.

Remember that as a child of God, He wants the best for us and our future.

God bless you.
