Read about the armour of God, then make a belt of truth; discuss how Jesus speaks truth, but Satan tells lies.
Discussion point: Telling the truth shows we are on God’s team.
“Champion” truth in your home by honouring truth-telling. First, read about the armour of God found in Ephesians 6:10-18. Then help your children make a belt of truth they can each wear. To make the belt, simply cover a cardboard strip, or an existing belt, with tinfoil and/or duct tape.
Talk about how speaking the truth wins the battle for Jesus, who is Truth, rather than Satan, who is the father of lies (John 14:6, John 8:44). Emphasize that when we tell the truth, we show we are on God’s team, not Satan’s.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ ”
“[Jesus said] ‘You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.’ ”
