As children of a Father who is Truth Himself, we should always walk in truth. There really is no need to lie. Take a look at this wonderful Scripture.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
3 John 1:4 ESV
It is a thing of joy for us to see our children accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour and walking in the truth.
Jesus is the way, truth, and life. Walking in truth implies walking in step with God.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.John 14:6
This brings great joy to God himself when we walk in truth.
Walking in truth is you refusing to pick that pencil, even when you know the owner doesn’t really need it.
Walking in truth is you refusing to join them in making a noise when the teacher isn’t around yet.
Walking in truth is you refusing to fight in school, even when you know your friend is wrong and you really want to deal with him.
Walking in truth is you being in Sunday School and not roaming about the streets on a Sunday morning.
Knowing and walking with Jesus is knowing and walking in the truth.
Our children should always learn to live and walk uprightly, that is, living righteous lives.
It is the responsibility of parents to ensure this happens.
May God help us all to walk in step with Him in Jesus name. Amen
Prayer for children
Lord, help me to seek and know you early in Jesus Name.
Prayer for Parents
Lord, help us to always pray, teach, and train our children to walk in your way.
Parents, pray, teach, and train your children to walk in truth.
My children walk in truth always. They bring great joy to me.
