April 30 is National Honesty Day... bringing awareness to the truth. As April begins with a day for Fools, it goes out with a day for honesty!
Honesty is important every day of the year, but this specific day we can bring more emphasis to it with a great resource from Tommy Nelson!
Hermie and Friends
Two full length episodes (45 mins each) on this DVD focused on telling the truth.
The star of both shows is Flo the fly, who has a knack for exaggerating the truth, to get attention. Something she thinks is harmless, is hurting others. Flo tells God that sometimes the truth isn't as fun, so she embellishes it. Flo has lied so often that her friends are not believing a word she says anymore. Much like the boy who cried wolf, the stories Flo tells are shrugged off and ignored. Though she desires to stop lieing, she gets caught back up in it again and again. Her friends catch her in the lies and she tries to back peddle, only to hurt them more.
The Water Beetles are coming to town for a concert (voices by Third Day), and Flo mentions that she knows them.. which she doesn't. Later she actually finds them lost and they come to her house. She goes to tell her friends, but they turn a deaf ear. The 'most amazing' thing to happen to her and she can't even share it with her friends because of her reputation for lying.
Telling the truth is important. Honesty is the best policy and being honest is what true friends do.
In Episode two, Flo has her own talk show. She gets into the gossip and hype of the show. She spreads untruths and hurts her friends with the things she talks about. There is a cute song that Flo sings about "I'm Sorry are the two hardest words to say". Flo must learn that saying I am Sorry is the only way to heal brokenness. Young Adam Ant learns this lesson and shares it with Flo and her viewers. God says, Forgiveness heals broken relationships and we should forgive everyone.
This celebration of Honesty is a great time to explore the truth with our kids, to share with them the importance of honesty and and saying I am sorry.
