Primary 6 Lesson 17: Joseph Forgives His Brothers is the last one in the Joseph story and focuses on helping us have the desire to forgive.
These are a few bonus ideas, keep scrolling for more!
- Use the sack of rocks from Little LDS Ideas to demonstrate carrying grudges (put heavy items inside each sack). Have one person hold one bag straight out in front of him then add more bags as you relate more times they chose to hold on instead of letting it go. Eventually it should get pretty heavy and too much to carry alone. Then show we choose to forgive, it lightens our load.
