- The enemy, our old nature and society encourages us to lie to stay out of trouble.
- While it’s not always easy to be truthful, lies get us into even more trouble.
- “Crossed fingers” are not a free pass to lie/practice lying.
- God is truth, so we want to teach our children to be honest and adults should be, truthful, too.
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19).
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom (Psalm 51:6).
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippians 4:13).
So BCU Youth Squad, how do you feel about lying? How does your parents, guardians or family members feel about you lying? How do you feel about being lied to? Now that you know God doesn’t like lies, how will that compel you to be truthful?
