Theme: Holiness means goodness all the way through!
“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous…” (Psalm 15:1-2)

The Beauty of Holiness: Do your children know what “holy” means? Read Psalm 15 and point out the various attributes of the man who can stay in the Lord’s temple. He’s a pretty good guy, isn’t he! Holiness means being perfect all the way through! No faults at all. Ask your children if you are holy. They’re probably pretty aware of at least some of your sins! Talk about some of your faults honestly, emphasizing that apart from Jesus, you are NOT good all the way through. In fact, no one is! But amazingly enough, Adam and Eve didn’t have any faults when they were first created. It was pretty wonderful!
