Family Devotion: Belt of Truth

by Naomi Cassata

week-28Play: Play a game of True or False by making simple statements and asking your children to identify them as true or false. "Jesus died on the Cross, true or false?" "God only loves people who live in the United States, true or false?" (Be sure to give the correct answers to the false statements.)

Talk: The answers to all these questions can be found in God's Word. The Bible shows us the truth. In Ephesians 6:14, the apostle Paul said that we should put on God's truth like a belt. In Bible days, soldiers wore a special belt to keep their weapons organized and their loose clothing from slowing down their movements. Like a belt, God's truth can keep us from being tripped up by lies and can help us stay prepared to do God's work. How does knowing God's truth prepare us to do His work?

Pray: Ask God to help you recognize the truth.
