  1. Clear the Record features the story of the unforgiving servant.
  2. Respond Kindly to Those Who Hurt Me features the story of Joseph's unexpected response to his brothers' mistreatment of him.
  3. Acknowledge My Sin features the account of how a story convicted a king.
  4. Ask for Forgiveness features the story of the prodigal son coming home.

Through this study children are motivated both to ask for forgiveness when they have done wrong and to demonstrate God's love by forgiving their offenders.
