Week 4: Source Code – Honesty
Main Verse: 1 John 1:9
Life Application: HONESTY- Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do
Bed Time: Has anyone ever lied to you? It hurts when someone doesn’t tell you the truth and then it’s hard to trust that person again. That’s why it’s so important for you to be honest! Are there specific times when you’re tempted to be untruthful? Pray for each other that you would have the courage to always tell the truth.
Remember this: “Anyone who lives without blame walks safely. But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.” Proverbs 10:9, NIrV
