“He who speaks truth tells what is right, but a false witness, deceit.” (Proverbs 12:17)
- Review: Review Proverbs 12: 22 in different location in your house. Say it in one room, then run to another room and say it again. If your house is small like ours, you might be able to say it in every room!
- Witnessess: Talk about witnesses and their job of accurately reporting the facts that they observed. Then let your children take on the role of a faithful witness by playing an active version of Memory. In room #1, put one set of Memory tiles. In room #2, put only 2-4 tiles. If you have two PreK children like I do, then let the children play together. If not, you’ll have to be the second player. Here’s how the game works. Player A will run to room #2 and see the tiles that are there. They must leave those tiles, run back to room #1, and describe the tiles to Player B. Player B will then attempt to find the matching ones in his or her set. This game is fun and expends energy (always a plus)! Join in the play one time and be a false witness. Use the situation as a springboard to discuss deceit versus truth.
- History: Read the famous legend of Washington and the Cherry Tree. Discuss how Washington was a faithful witness, even in a difficult situation.
- Pray: Ask God to help you and your children be faithful witnesses in every situation.
