God gives us Truth so we can live with Him forever. When we bear false witness, we are saying that the Truth isn’t important.
What does bear false witness mean? It means to lie. You say something that is not really true.
Picture an arrow. A truth is an arrow that points you in the right direction. A lie is an arrow that points you in the wrong direction. What do you think happens if you point someone in a wrong direction? That person may get lost or scared. He or she may get hurt. This is what happens to those we lie to.
Every person must have the truth. We find God in Truth. Without the truth, we become lost. We don’t know what is right or wrong. We don’t know what is good or bad. We don’t know who is our friend and who is not.
What do lies look like? Let’s look at a few:
1. Say you did your homework when you didn’t.
2. Break a dish and blame it on your sister.
3. Not stop a rumor you know is wrong.
4. Tell others a secret you promised to keep.
Think about a few ways that you’ve broken the eighth Commandment.
Words to remember:
In this lesson we learned that:
We find God in Truth.
We are lost without Truth.
Lies point people in the wrong direction and can hurt them or make them sad and angry.... Please purchase this lesson to continue learning.
