Sky Ranch Family Devotional…Truth in God’s Word, with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Fun Icebreaker: What is your favorite Bible verse? 

Question: Who do you trust?

Topic 1: Trust—Truth and Faith

Today’s Big Idea: Truth in God’s Word

Share with your family that the Bible is a form of truth which serves as a useful guide in your relationship with God. The Bible also gives guidelines for learning the right way to live life and for having productive relationships with family and friends.
The questions give your family the opportunity to talk about how you define right and wrong. Encourage your family to discuss their source of truth. Share why you value your source of truth. Teach each other what you look for, or listen for, to recognize truth. Recognizing truth in everyday situations is a valuable life lesson to share with each other. Sometimes it is difficult to see truth on your own; however, praying about it helps. God tells you that His Word, the Holy Bible, is truth. His truth is to lead you and teach you. Jesus said that He is the truth and His truth leads you to God, the Father.

Talk with God: Read scripture and questions below.
John 17:17 (ESV) (Jesus is speaking): “Sanctify (clean) them in the

truth; your word is truth.”
Psalm 25:5 (ESV): “Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation...”
John 14:6 (ESV) (Jesus is speaking): “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Walk with God:
Discuss with younger kids: Learning who you can trust is important to know. Some people lie. You know it is good to tell the truth and you like it when others are truthful with you. How do you know what the truth is? Where did you learn the difference between right and wrong? Who or what teaches you truth? How?
Discuss with older kids: To decide who you trust, you have to begin with a decision in truth. God gives you the truth in His Word, but others can claim to know a truth that opposes God’s truth. How do you decide who really tells the truth? How does your definition of truth define who you trust?

Prayer suggestion: Ask God to show you who is telling the truth. 

I will be praying for you!
