Memory Verse

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor”

Audio Icon   Exodus 20:16



In this episode, Liz and the gang experienced how big lies and little lies can have the same consequences—people get hurt, and it separates us from God.

Christians should always tell the truth—even when it’s difficult! Sometimes telling the truth calls for bravery. Have you ever broken something or stolen something and been afraid to tell the truth about the situation?

Or sometimes telling the truth calls for kindness. Have you ever been in a situation like this: you eat something you don’t like, but you lie and say that you love it? If you say the food is gross, the person who gave it to you might be hurt or sad. But if you tell a little white lie, you’ll make them feel good. How can you tell the truth in this situation?

There are ways to tell the truth with bravery and kindness. If you're not sure how to speak the truth, tell God. He'll be glad to help you honor both the truth and your listener.

Want to dig deeper about how important it is to tell the truth? Check out Proverbs 12:19, Ephesians 4:25, Titus 2:8


It’s simple: Don’t lie this week. Keep track of how you feel as you stick to “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
