Lesson 10: Forgiveness

Game Plan
That players will gain an understanding of what it means to forgive.

Ask your players, "What does it mean to forgive?"
Give your players the dictionary's definition:
To pardon; to remember no more; to allow someone to recover from a mistake.

The Pitch
"We should forgive and then forget what we have forgiven."

Conference on the Mound
Ask your players what the saying above means to them.

The Hit
The saying means, first of all that we should forgive everyone who hurts us, and in doing so, try also to forget the very thing we have forgiven them of. All of us will be hurt by people, sometimes each day. Mean or angry words, a broken promise, or a lot of other things may happen which can hurt us. Still, we must forgive. Forgiving, if practiced right, means not remembering what someone did wrong. If you forgive others, when it is your time to be forgiven, it will be easier for them to forgive you.

Fielder's Choice
Forgiving others is a choice. It is really neat how forgiveness works. Although hard to explain, when you forgive someone you are actually setting yourself free from the control of the thing they did wrong. You no longer carry the hurt around inside you, so this helps you to feel a lot better. People will not always apologize or feel sorry for hurting you, but that should not keep you from forgiving them. Everyone deserves to be forgiven. Choose to forgive every wrong someone does to you.

"He has taken our sins away from us as far as the east is from the west." (Psalm 103:12)

The Final Out
Ask for any prayer needs and during prayer ask the Lord to help your players forgive anyone who has hurt them. Ask your players to think of someone who may have done something wrong to them and tell them to ask God to help them to forgive them and to not remember the hurt any more.
