Dear parents,

This Sunday June 24th we are starting a three-week study during 9:45am high school service examining the topic of integrity. News headlines are filled with stories about noteworthy people who have failed to maintain personal integrity. But our teenagers don’t have to make choices that lead them down the wrong path; they can make a commitment to pursue, develop, and maintain personal integrity.

In this first Sunday, our teenagers will see how Daniel 6:1-5 offers a roadmap for becoming people of integrity. Because of Daniel’s work ethic he was promoted and found favor with the king. We will be encouraging students to realize that they too can make choices and live with the same integrity that Daniel demonstrated. But it isn’t always easy to live with integrity; Daniel’s co-workers conspired against him and even attacked his faith.

If you would like to get a head start on Sundays message as opportunities arise, discuss with your teenager what it might have been like to have been Daniel. Here are some questions that could help launch your discussion:

  • In what areas of your life do you struggle the most in maintaining your integrity?
  • What are some ways you’ve grown in integrity? What choices or decisions or habits have helped you?
  • What’s something you could start doing differently at your job, on a sports team, or at school that would communicate your integrity?

Talk with your teenager about how making a decision to be a person of integrity now will have a huge impact for a lifetime. Have a blessed week!
