The Bible and your conscience tell you right from wrong.

God tells us what’s right and wrong in His Word, the Bible. The Bible teaches that anything that displeases and dishonors God is wrong, and is called sin. The Ten Commandments are a list of some of the sinful, wrong things we shouldn’t do: stealing, lying, dishonoring your parents, and more. When we sin, we feel guilty because God has given us a conscience that helps us know right from wrong.

Sometimes you might not be sure if something is right or wrong. In that case, you should pray about it and look in the Bible. You can also ask your parents or a trusted adult for advice. Only through Jesus can we be forgiven for the wrong things we do. And Jesus changes our lives to help us do right things that please God! (For more information on who Jesus is, click here.)

“They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts. The way their minds judge them gives witness to that fact” (Romans 2:15a).
