Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Proverbs 12:22

Daily Bible Verse and Devotion for Teens About Telling the Truth

The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth. – Proverbs 12:22

Telling the truth is pretty easy when it doesn’t really matter. If someone at school asks you if you went shopping this weekend, telling the truth is easy. Regardless of your answer, it doesn’t really matter.

However, if your mom asks you something and the answer would get you in trouble, telling the truth becomes a lot harder. It would be easier to stretch the truth or change what happened a bit to make yourself look good and avoid trouble.

Telling the truth in moments like those takes courage on your part. It’s not easy telling the truth when it costs you or gets you in trouble.

Being a person of character means telling the truth regardless of the consequences. It takes work to put aside what’s easy and would feel good at the moment to do what’s right in the long run.

God rewards character and those who seek after Him, so challenge yourself to be a person full of character. When you do, you can watch and see God do great things through you.
