Message to Parents
As parents we hear a lot of talk about social media in our kid’s lives and the dangers associated with the internet but what about societal pressures our kids face every day…especially our with girls! Here’s five strategies to protect our girls from the challenges they face.
Now with your kids...
Grab your Bible and a bunch of pillows and get ready to experience Jesus with your kids! Here’s your theme…Integrity means choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
Ask them, “Do you want to play a game?” Explain the game to them as you grab some pillows and spread them out across the floor of your room. Have them stand in the doorway of your room and pretend the entire floor is covered in lava. Carefully jump from one pillow to the next to reach your bed. If your foot touches any part of the floor, go back to the doorway and start over.
Say to them, “Did you make it all the way across the floor the first time? Just like you had to think carefully about which pillow to jump to next to reach the safety of your bed, we need to be careful that we make the kind of decisions that lead us in the right direction. When we choose to be honest, when we choose to do what’s right over what’s easy, we don’t have to worry because we’ll always end up heading in the right direction!”
Lay on the bed with them and read Proverbs 4:25-26.
Wrap it up by telling them, “Choosing to be truthful in all you say and do so that you’ll end up where you want to be. Because when you focus on what’s true, you’ll always be headed in the right direction!”
Now confess to them that you’d like to smack them with a pillow and do it! Tell them, “I was just trying to be truthful in everything I do!” Have fun as you teach them His Word!

Always on My Mind
Think on These Things
Focus on what’s true.
Integrity—Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do
I need to make the wise choice.
We finish up the month in Philippians 4:8. Paul reminds the church, Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. If we want to have integrity with our entire lives, we have to fill our minds with good things in the first place.
Bottom Line: Focus on what’s true. Being a person of integrity takes work. We hope that this week kids will discover how they can fill their minds with what is true and good and worth thinking about. Filling our minds with what’s true, can helps us live our lives with honesty and integrity.
