Whatever it is, truth matters.
Some call it fudging. Fibbing. Glossing over. Padding the numbers. Being two-faced. Any way you spin it, lying is everywhere. Politicians deceive, athletes cheat, corporations falsify , journalists plagiarize, and magazines airbrush.
In fact, as broken people, all of us lie . . . parents and children included. The fissures of lying are compromising our society's foundation.
But there is hope: There is absolute truth. It's found in the Word of God. Yet knowing the truth and living with integrity mean more than keeping a checklist of rights and wrongs.
The Bible teaches that the truth must inform our every decision, choice, and action: "Everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock" (Matthew 7:24).
Families need to talk about truth because we all need to know the difference between right and wrong—between truth and untruth. It's the foundation on which we build a life of faith and trust. And role models like these can take us there. These true stories will capture your family's attention, granting vision and worthy examples that will redefine truth for every age.
Each day also includes:
- A key Bible verse
- Questions to discuss together
- A suggested prayer
- A personal record of your family's character as it relates to these stories
Encounter real-life heroes right in your living room—and begin to grow together in character as a family.
Growing Together in Truth is part of The Character Stories for Families Series: Heart-changing history.
