“Before God, I do not lie” (Galatians 1:20)

Children, it is very important to be active and attentive at your school so that you could become a good and brave students passing all your exams with very good grades.

Dear Children of God! The foremost valuable thing you should know about success is that it is given from God. If you obey the Lord by being good children without any bad deed and sin, He will give you good life. This means you will be happy, rich and strong person in the future. But, it is important to remember to obey God’s commandment and live by His rule. Children, do you remember the ten commandments? If so that is very good. But if not, it is a better if you learn them soon because they are guidance of our lives. However, if you do not know them, it is probable that you make a mistake and sin (do bad deeds) and disappoint (sadden) God.

Dear Children, we believe by now you know that God does not like bad deeds and people. It is necessary to always remember this and know If you are bad, He will punish you. Children, among other sins God does not like lying or people who lie. Do you know why that is? It is because lying is bad and a wrong thing. It is also disobeying God. Saint Paul the apostle has written in his epistle (letter) to the Galatia people “now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.” (Galatians 1:20) That is why today we will teach you about “Lie” which is a sin.”
