The Bible Says:

"Do not give false witness against your neighbor."
Deuteronomy 5:20
The Ten Commandments (9) -
Campfire Tales & Fish Stories!

The Critter's are having an evening of quiet sharing around a campfire. Joshua Jackrabbit seems to be getting a little carried away with his tale. Crossing his finger won't help when the rest of the Critter's figure out He is stretching the truth. He will no doubt get a scolding from Gramma Cherbear. Joshua will learn to be more truthful when telling His campfire tales and fish stories!

When we lie about anything, we show others that our word is no good. What we say, they cannot rely on to be true. We cannot be trusted. All lies are sinful to God. If we cannot think of something good and truthful to is best to say nothing at all!

It is true, God does not want you telling lies that will hurt other people. He knows telling any lie will cause hurt for you as well! You should make sure you do not add anything to the truth. You may think it makes you look special to stretch the truth a bit, but it only makes you look bad. Telling tall tales or lies to others, even in fun, could make your friends not trust you or believe you even when you are telling the truth.
God doesn't want us to lie to ourselves either. He wants us to see the truth about what we do and think! That is why He gave us the Bible as our guide book. Lies come in many forms. There is the tiny lie that we think will not hurt. The BIG lie that we have to keep adding to; Making up new things to cover up the original lie can wear us down. We must be careful when telling tales. Stretching the truth is also a lie in God's eyes. God wants us to keep all our campfire tales and fish stories truthful! Let the light of Jesus shine brightly!
Blessed Are You!
"Blessed are those who suffer for doing what is right.
The kingdom of heaven belongs to them."
Matthew 5:10


God gives us His truths in the Bible. He tells us how to live good, obey Him, and how we can live in heaven with Him forever. It can be hard to share Jesus with the world. Sometimes when we share the truth with others they do not want to hear it. We are obedient when we share His truths. We are already blessed. We will see Him in heaven.
