Lying Lips Are An Abomination To The Lord

Posted on Updated on

God hates it when we lie! When we lie we are going against His very nature John 14:6. God hates lying so much that He included it as one of the Ten Commandments.

We can clearly see how serious God is about lies and this is what we want our kids to learn as well. They need to understand that God hates it when we lie. That lying is a serious sin.

“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.” Proverbs 12:22

It ruins friendships and characters. It hurts others and it can even influence others to sin as well.

Take this opportunity to correct the worlds false view of lying. The world believes in half-truths and “white” lies, but Gods Word shows us that a lie is a lie. They need to comprehend that when we lie we hurt others.

Tell your kids that it takes love to tell someone the truth, even when they know they will be hurt by their response; making an emphasis on the fact that the truth needs to be said lovingly. Teaching them that we need to practice sincere honesty with our family, friends, and in the church.

Lot’s Wife

Posted on Updated on

Lots wife not only was warned of the coming destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but was provided with a way of escape for herself and her family. She was given very simple instructions, do not turn around and look at the city. Instead of fleeing for her life she turned around because her heart was set on the sinful city and as a consequence of her disobedience she turned into a pillar of salt.

Instead of setting our minds and hearts on the things of this world we should set them on God.

“18 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:18-20

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:2

Jonah And The Fish

Posted on Updated on

Jonah knew what God had commanded him to do, but he chose to disobey. Then came the discipline of the Lord. God disciplines those He loves and this is an important lesson for all children to learn. It’s not always fun, but its one way that God demonstrates His love.

“My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord Or loathe His reproof. For whom the Lord loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.” Proverbs 3:11-12
