GOING DEEPER

  1. Remember a time when you were caught in a lie. Why did you do it and how did you feel afterwards?

  2. Read Jeremiah 1:6,7 and Leviticus 9:12. What were God’s people encouraged to do and why?

  3. Read Numbers 30:2 and Proverbs 12:22. When God’s people made a vow what were they expected to do?

  4. Read Matthew 12:33-37. How do our words matter? What are they an indicator of?

  5. How is your heart and are your words a good indicator of it? Make a quick list of lies you tell, ask God to forgive you and let’s start telling the truth… whole truth…and nothing but the truth!



Blanks: honesty, heart, honesty, truth.
