Woodlawn Family Bible Study
BIBLE READING: Daniel 3:13-30
MAIN IDEA: “The Truth is the Right Answer”
In Philippians 4:8, Paul gives us a list of virtues that a Christian should focus on to help them live a life of good moral character, even in a society of immorality. These are the duties we owe each other in our society. This week we will study some of these virtues.
The truth is always the right thing even though the consequences at the time may seem unbearable. Would it have been easier for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to say “no” in verse 14? Their desire to please God by being true to Him influenced an entire nation. The influence we make on others by being truthful will make a positive difference on the people of our society and could possibly change an entire nation. Being true is not something we do selectively. Proverbs 14:25 tells us, “A true witness delivers souls, but a deceitful witness speaks lies."
Is silence an acceptable answer to someone even if you know the truth?
