  • Recognise that there is a cost of hiding from God (Proverbs 28:13)
  • Fulfil past promises and vows
  • Put on the “Belt of Truth”

to Parents

  • Clear your conscience with them
  • Never promise anyone not to tell your parents
  • Seek your parents approval on all friendships
  • Do not secretly listen to music that you know your parents would disapprove
  • Share with your parents areas of moral weakness and ask for their help and protection

to your Employers

  • Be punctual
  • Respect your employer’s property and time
  • Refuse to compromise the truth in order to gain money

to your Church Leaders

  • Be accountable to your pastor or church leader
  • When you sing a hymn, ask yourself, “Do I really mean these words, or how can I make them true right now?”
  • Make sure that the music you listen to is true to the nature of God rather than the sound of the world
