TOPIC: Good Outside, Bad Inside? [Open Heaven for Teens 15 February 2022]

MEMORISE: The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. Proverbs 12:24

READ: Ephesians 6:2-3

  1. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
  2. That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 28:1-20 , Leviticus 20-21


The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. Proverbs 12:24

A Yoruba adage says It’s another man’s job that a lazy fellow does judiciously”. I find this hilarious because ordinarily, a lazy fellow cannot do anything judiciously; whatever he does will be done carelessly. Your identity as a child of God should put a consciousness in you to be responsible both at home and outside it.

Your parents and siblings are the first people you should be accountable to as a way of appreciation for their love, care and continued financial support. Thus, it is important to honour your parents by helping out in their legitimate businesses, ministries, doing chores and running errands for them. Copy Jesus who was first known in His neighbourhood as the son of the carpenter because He contributed time and effort into His father’s business and got a good reputation in it. Thus, when He started His spiritual assignment, they were surprised but couldn’t doubt His genuineness as a good son.

Be a good child at home and everywhere.

HYMN: Let Others See Jesus In You

  1. While passing through this world of sin,
    And others your life shall view,
    Be clean and pure without, within,
    Let others see Jesus in you.
    Let others see Jesus in you,
    Let others see Jesus in you;
    Keep telling the story, be faithful and true,
    Let others see Jesus in you.
  2. Your life’s a book before their eyes,
    They’re reading it through and through;
    Say, does it point them to the skies,
    Do others see Jesus in you?
  3. What joy ’twill be at set of sun,
    In mansions beyond the blue,
    To find some souls that you have won;
    Let others see Jesus in you.
  4. Then live for Christ both day and night,
    Be faithful, be brave, and true,
    And lead the lost to life and light;
    Let others see Jesus in you.
