Group Question--All Answers Welcome!
Last night at Awanas, in the Cubbies pre-schooler group, we made "ugly" pictures and hung them on the felt board cross behind where Jesus was hanging. We went through the resurrection and talked about our sins having been forgiven.
After that, one four year old was at the worst behavior he's ever been, saying bad, hateful things to his neighbors all evening long, in spite of remonstrances not to. When Cubbies was over, his mom was called in and she disciplined him appropriately by cutting the rest of the evening short for him.
Question: We're all born and raised with parental discipline, according to the scripture. But if a pre-schooler were to ask, Jesus already died for my sin, why am I still being punished? What would be an appropriate pre-school teacher reply?
