People will always make excuses for telling lies, they call them white lies but lies are lies. Lies are not only sin but they’re just like sin, both lying and sin just lead to more and worse lies and sin.
The Bible calls Satan the “Father of Lies” don’t be his child be a child of the Good Father, be a child of God who not only speaks the truth but is the Truth.
I have a story to prove the goodness of truth and faithfulness of God.
A man was in prison unjustly, a prisoner of the faith. He and his fellow prisoners decided to attempt to stage an escape, the prison itself was on an island so they decided to little by little find wood and build a boat. After a long time they finally had a boat ready that they hoped could get them to freedom.
They managed to sneak out but when they came around a corner there were two guards. One of them asked, “Are you trying to escape?”
The man knowing it was a sin to lie decided to be faithful to God’s word and said, “Yes.”
The guard said, “Good, so are we. Let’s go.”
The two guards led them out of the prison. They got on the boat and fled.
However the story doesn’t end there. You see when they got out to sea, a storm came and began to knock the little boat around But as it turned out the two guards were also sailors. The guards navigated the storm and they made it to freedom.
The man said if the guards weren’t with them they would not have survived.
All glory to God.
You see the truth can and will set you free (in some instances in more ways than one).
So be in truth, be in God and have a blessed week,
