There is right and there is wrong. Actions speak louder than words. No amount of sweet talking can cover over unrighteous acts!

Proverbs 20:11 is one of the very best verses to start teaching a little child with. Even a 3-year old can under stand the simple wording. There is no chastising in this verse, only observational teaching that tells a child "You show me who you are by how you behave!" It will echo in their spirits in strategic times.

Now we sons of God should let our light shine before men so that they may see our good works and glorify our Father that is in heaven Matthew 5:16, we must try hard to yield pure works; most of the time it will demand all our diligence.
