EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE FOR YOUTH

I am the Lord your God: you shall not have strange Gods before me. Do I care more about friends and games than talking to God? Do I try to be like Jesus and the Saints.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. Do I use God’s carelessly? Do I use the name of Jesus in anger?

Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day. Did I attend Mass on Sunday? Have I remembered to pray daily?

Honor your father and mother. Do I obey my parents? Have I done my chores without complaining or being reminded? Have I been disrespectful to teachers?

You shall not kill.  Do I get angry too easily and react in ways I regret? Do I hold grudges and try to get even with others? Am I caring to others, including those who seem different than me?

You shall not commit adultery. Do I show respect for my body and the bodies of others? Do I avoid harmful things like drugs, cigarettes and alcohol?

You shall not steal. Have I taken things that belongs to someone else? Have I used my money responsibly?

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour. Do I ever cheat at at games or in my school work? Have I lied? Do I gossip or talk behind peoples backs?

You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife? Am I jealous of other people’s friends or status? Is being popular more important to me than following God?

You shall not covet your neighbour’s goods.  Have I been jealous of the things that my friends have? Have I nagged my parents into buying things I don’t really need? Am I generous with my time and possessions?

 

Bible verse of the day

Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you— better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.
