Memory Verse

“A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free”

In this episode, Scooter learns that lies lead to more lies which leads to more trouble. The only way to avoid the trouble is to tell the truth.

God gave Adam and Eve one rule in the Garden of Eden. He told them not to eat the fruit from one tree. He said that if they ate the fruit, they would die. But Satan told Eve a lie (Genesis 3:4). He told her she would not die, but instead would be like God. Eve believed the lie and ate the fruit. Immediately, she began to die. The very first lie caused sin to come into the world. It’s because of that sin that all of us have to die. Satan’s lie might not seem like much, but it led to a world of problems.

Want to dig deeper and learn what God says about lying? Read Proverbs 12:22, John 8:44, and Colossians 3:9.


Ask your parents or other trusted adults about a time when they told a lie that led to more lies that led to a lot of problems. How did it end? What lesson did they learn as a result? Talk with them about how much easier it is to tell the truth at the first opportunity.
