The ABCs of Repentance: A simple lesson for children

The alphabet is one of the first things a child learns and recites. It becomes engraved in their minds through repetition and song. What if we could teach our children the principle of Repentance with their love for the ABCs?


With this simple tool we’ll be able to teach our children how to make their mistakes right again through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and love for them.

A is for admit you’ve made a mistake.

B is for be sorry for what you’ve done. It either hurts others or yourself.

C is for correct the mistake if possible. If you’ve stolen something then return it and say sorry. If you’ve broken something pay for it or replace it.

D is for don’t do it again. Repentance, which is just a big word for turning our bad choices into good choices because of Jesus, is only real if we don’t keep making the same bad choices again and again.

One of the tools Satan is using today is teaching our young people that there is no sin. If there is no sin there is no needs for repentance.  If there is no sin there is also no need for Jesus. But this is not the case.  Right and wrong needs to be taught from a young age if we want our children to be raised in the Lord.


We were even taught to repent by many from the scriptures including Jesus and Peter.

Matthew 4:17

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.


Acts 2:38

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

I pray that we can teach our children through Christ, who will make them clean and free from guilt.


Let us know how this lesson went with your children. May God Bless you!
