Truth champions

Creative crafts

Read about the armour of God, then make a belt of truth; discuss how Jesus speaks truth, but Satan tells lies.

Discussion point: Telling the truth shows we are on God’s team.

“Champion” truth in your home by honouring truth-telling. First, read about the armour of God found in Ephesians 6:10-18. Then help your children make a belt of truth they can each wear. To make the belt, simply cover a cardboard strip, or an existing belt, with tinfoil and/or duct tape.

Talk about how speaking the truth wins the battle for Jesus, who is Truth, rather than Satan, who is the father of lies (John 14:6, John 8:44). Emphasize that when we tell the truth, we show we are on God’s team, not Satan’s.

John 8:44 “[Jesus said] ‘You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.’ ”
