Truthfulness is telling information accurately, without exaggerating or misleading.

A prayer to teach your children, and yourself, about truthfulness:

Lord, help me to be truthful. Sometimes, I am afraid if I tell the truth I’ll get in trouble or someone will be angry with me. Thank you that Jesus died to pay for all the sins of his people. Please give me the courage to please you be being truthful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

This definition and prayer are taken from Get Wisdom!. Though the book is written to instruct young children about biblical wisdom, it reminds us that the things we teach our children are the same things that God wants us to learn and practice.  We struggle with truthfulness just as much as our children do. May God give us the courage, as adults, to pray this same prayer.
