The truth about lying
This will sound negative and like it’s coming from a person who has a critical spirit, BUT…. I think I’ve been lied to.
I know, I know…. you’re thinking “welcome to the real world,” but here’s the thing — it involves someone I thought I could truly trust. Someone I’ve confided in. Many times.
Why do people try to cover their tracks? Why don’t they have the guts to tell the truth? I mean, isn’t our friendship worth more than that?
The Bible tells us that Jesus was tempted like we are, yet He remained sinless. I am sure there were times when it would’ve been easy for Him to tell people what He knew they wanted to hear, but He didn’t.
Jesus set the bar for us to follow. Baptism. Forgiveness. The importance of knowing Scripture. Loving others. And then there’s this thing called the truth.
“The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.” Proverbs 12:22
