Devotional: Telling The Truth
Children's Devotion on being truthful
This is a scary story of Ananias and Sapphira. They lied to God by saying that the money they had given to the Apostles was all the money from the sale of their land. They didn't need to give all the money if they didn't want to. They could have just said that it was part of it. But they lied about it. God takes lying very seriously. God is a God of truth. Lying is opposite to His nature; it is the nature of Satan, our enemy. I don't believe God would strike us dead today if we have lied, but He takes away the peace in our hearts if we have lied.
It is far better to tell the truth and face the punishment than to lie and lose our peace with God, and lose the trust that our parents or friends have in us. This is something we should think of before we lie. Trust is often broken. When someone lies, we cannot believe much of what they say anymore. So, make it your choice today and every day, to always tell the truth–no matter how much trouble you are in. It's the smart choice.

What this adds up to, then, is this: no more lies, no more pretense. Tell your neighbour the truth. In Christ's body we're all connected to each other, after all. When you lie to others, you end up lying to yourself. - Ephesians 4:25 (MSG)
Lord, I pray that you will help me
