A Generous Spirit

Key Passage
Then the father said to him, "Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found." (Luke 15:31–32)
Adults: When have you been generous enough to forgive someone who hurt you deeply?
Children: Is there someone you need to forgive or ask forgiveness of?
