It’s just a little white lie. It doesn’t hurt anyone. You’ve probably thought or heard that before. So what’s the big deal about lying? Especially when no one really gets harmed in the process. Isn’t it ok to stretch the truth if it helps yourself out?
The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. – Proverbs 12:22
This verse gives us a different idea about lying, doesn’t it? It shows us that the Lord detests lying lips. Wow. So maybe a little lie isn’t really not that big of a deal.
Why does it matter if you tell the truth? And why should we as Christians be telling the truth?
Well, first of all, God is truth. The Bible tells us that He can’t lie. And that’s great because when we read something in the Bible, we can just believe it, because we know that God is being totally honest with us. It is God’s nature to tell the truth, and as His followers, we should be doing the same.
Other people around us should be able to count on us to do what we say. If we say we’re going to be somewhere, we should be there. If we say that we’re going to do something, we should do it. As God’s children, we should be imitating Him. He doesn’t lie, and we shouldn’t either.
We should be known as people who tell the truth.
Here’s the good news. If you’ve struggled with lying in the past, there is hope. You can break free of lying because you’ve got God to help you. Go to Him. Ask Him to show you ways that you can break free. Keep taking small steps toward breaking free from lying. You’ll be glad you did!
