Truthfulness

'Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.'

1 John 3:18

 

As Christians, we believe that truth is revealed in the Bible and supremely in the person and life of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ teaching we are given an insight into the nature of God and the way in which He means us to live. Jesus said 'I am the light of the world.' When someone tells the truth it is as if a light has been switched on and things are clearer to see.

 

As Christians we need to develop our understanding that we all face dilemma about telling the truth but coming to the realisation for ourselves that telling the truth is better than carrying the burden of a lie. In the Bible there are various stories which exemplify the importance of truth such as the parable of the Sower in Luke 8.

 

How can we show truthfulness in school?

  • Telling the truth to each other all the time
  • Remembering that God taught us we should always be truthful
  • Knowing that if we are honest we can ask for forgiveness
  • Knowing we should not tell lies
