God’s love can heal even our greatest hurts. But what about the scars healing leaves behind?
ABOUT THIS PARABLE
- Concept: A youth leader teaches his Sunday School class of teenagers about scars, healing, and testimony.
- Story Origin: Original
- Setting: A church youth room.
- Scars are the evidence of healing.
- We all have scars. Some you can see, and some you can’t.

- Our scars can be our testimony to those who may bear similar wounds.
- Key Bible Verse: John 20:19-20 On the evening of the first day of the week, when the disciples were together with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
