Just A Little Lie

4 Oct

As humans , we are sometimes tempted to say just the right thing to suit us. Just the right thing won’t offend and hurt others, but is it the whole truth?

At other times, just a little lie is told to impress others, to cover our shortcomings, or to keep up with the Jones.

Let’s keep in mind that it was just a little lie told in a garden centuries ago that changed the course of history. (Genesis 3). As a result, every human being has sinned, and now has the capacity  to tell just a little lie. (Romans 3:23)

But God has MUCH to say about our LITTLE lies.
“Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,” Colossians‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ http://bible.com/114/col.3.9-10.nkjv

“Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight.”Proverbs‬ ‭12:22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ http://bible.com/114/pro.12.22.nkjv

Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭50:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬http://bible.com/1/psa.50.23.kjv

Thank You Lord for forgiving us and delivering us from lies, large or small. For sin is sin with You, no matter the size. John 8:44 tells us that Satan is the father of lies. Help us, Your children, to always speak the truth in love for you, and for others. This will bring glory to You, and that’s what we long to do. In Jesus name. Amen.

    Thank you for this eye-opening post, and for keeping it Real. May we always let our yes be yes and our no be no! Because anything else is Big Trouble…

    (Mt 5:37~words of Christ)
    [37] Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

    (see also James 5:12)

    SO be it, and Thank you, Jesus!
