Today's Devotional for Children
Sometimes when we are raised in a family were our Fathers and Mothers are divorced we are taught to be loyal to one parent over the other. We are taught that lying is okay in order to get material things that we want, not caring that maybe the parent we are lying to loves us so much that they put you as first and foremost even before their own essential needs are met.
This is never okay or right, no matter what the parent we are most involved with says. We as Gods children are to never participate in lying or cheating anyone in order to get everything we want, let alone to do that to one of our parents whom God has commanded us to honor. If we do not follow Gods commandment on this, He will not bless us in other areas of our lives. God also tells us in the Holy Bible that all liars will burn in the bowl of fire if we do not repent and change our ways.
Heavenly Father help me to be a good, honest and loving child of God no matter what the circumstances. Please forgive me for any wrongdoing I may have participated in towards my Father or Mother in order to be loyal. In Jesus precious name I pray, Amen.
Verse Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished?
Where were the upright ever destroyed?
As I have observed, those who plow evil
and those who sow trouble reap it.
Devotional Heavenly Father, let my love be without hypocrisy. I abhor what is evil. I will cling to what is good. Help me to be kindly affectionate to others with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to others, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, but serving You O Lord, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, and giving hospitality.
