A Spiritual Journey towards faith in Jesus Christ for Children
Day 23 -The Unforgivable Sin
Family Scripture Reading: Matthew 12:30-36
Family Discussion Starters:
What does Jesus say is the only sin which will not be forgiven?
("And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven." Matthew 12:31)
Do you understand what blasphemy means?
(Allow your child to try to define this word. According to both BibleStudyTools.com and Dictionary.com this refers to speaking against the Holy Spirit. See the above websites for additional information.)
What could be considered the good news of this statement?
(All other sins are forgiven if we ask for forgiveness!)
At the end of this passage Jesus speaks about our words.
What truth do we need to understand that should make a big difference in the words we use?
("But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken." Matt 12:36)
