Bible Point – Honesty is Important to God

Key Verse: The Lord detests lying lips, but He delights in men who are truthful. – Proverbs 12:22

It’s important to God that we’re honest in all things (Genesis 25:27-34; 27:1-40). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:

  1. Discuss people in the news who’ve gotten into trouble recently because of their dishonesty. (Make sure to use age-appropriate examples that your children would recognize as well.) Ask your kids to share what they think about those people’s actions.
  2. Talk about how those dishonest actions affected both others and the person responsible for those actions.
  3. Then talk about ways that family members can commit to being honest in the future.


God, keep us from deceitful ways and help us choose to always speak the truth. We want to be honest in all things, so we can please You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
