weekly devotionals for kids & parents to do together (K–3rd grade) or for 4th–5th graders to do on their own
Read and do the “Read Me First” first. Read and do “Day 1” next, and so forth. If you can’t do all the days in a week, don’t worry. Doing one day’s worth is better than none!

Step 1: Each day, find and read the Bible verse(s) for the day in a Bible.
Use the table of contents to locate hard-to-find verses.

Step 2: Read the paragraph for the day. Step 3: Read and do the activity for the day. Step 4: Pray a prayer using the prayer sentence as a guide.
Tips: Even though kindergartners and 1st graders are beginning to read short things, they will need your assistance to have a “God time.” Even though most second and third graders can read short things on their own, most aren’t mature enough to have a “God time” on their own. You will need to do it with them. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still need an adult to prompt them and/or follow up on it. Encourage your child to choose four different days this week to do these devotions.

Read Me First
Read Psalm 86:5.
Forgiveness allows us to be close to God. First, Jesus drew Zacchaeus TO God by treating him as a true friend—even before he changed. Then after Zacchaeus was changed, Jesus treated him like he was—as one who was forgiven of his sin.

Read Me Next Day 1
Forgiveness opens the way to better things. God can make good things happen when you forgive. People feel better; they feel happy instead of angry and upset. Friends are friends again. We feel close to God when we forgive and are forgiven.


Tell your family the story of Zacchaeus from today’s lesson. Look for a tree with a branch that’s low enough to climb. If possible, stop and climb it as you imagine what Zacchaeus felt like when Jesus looked up and spoke to him.


Praise God by praying Psalm 86:5 back to Him.

Hold as many stuffed animals, pillows, or other unbreakable objects as you possibly can. Now, pick up a pencil and write your name in this space without dropping anything:

6 A

Set all the stuff down and try it again.

Better, right? Carrying around a grudge is like that, too. It’s better when you let go of it. When you’re unwilling to forgive, it hardens your heart against what God wants to do in your life. It can even harden the heart of the other person.

Read Ephesians 4:32.

Ask God to help you let go of a hurt that you’re still holding on to.

6 A
Read 1 Corinthians 6:11. Read Me Next Day 3 Read Me Next Day 2 Read Romans 4:8.

Make a sandwich or snack for someone. Change it in some way to make it even better. You could cut it into shapes, decorate a paper plate to serve it on, or add a yummy topping.
Thank God for making bad things work for good and good things even better.

Forgiveness makes a clean heart possible. The only way a sinfilled heart can be changed and made right with God is through forgiveness.

6 A

Wash a dirty window or mirror and make it clean.

Talk to God about something you did wrong today. Ask Him to forgive you and help you make a U-turn.

Forgiveness M

Deciding that someone who has wronged you doesn’t have to pay
