Tonight I will talk with our Middle Schoolers about reconciliation. I am using a new (to me) curriculum called Wild Truth Bible Lessons: Dares from Jesus. I think the lessons seem great, and they have laid out lots of great ideas for activities to draw youth to focus on the topic and text at hand. With this curriculum in hand, I think it will also help us to be better prepared both now and down the road beyond this curriculum.
Here is a sermon from John Piper on reconciliation, as seen in Matthew 5:21-26.
A lack of reconciliation poisons our relationships, not only with others but with God!
