Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
But those who deal truthfully are His delight.
It is a shame that many of our top leaders have been caught lying about very important things lately. There is so much of this going on that it is a tragedy. I am sure they started out lying about smaller things and then it became easier to lie about larger things.
When someone has lied to you in the past, how do you know when they are telling the truth? Some people only tell the whole truth when it is convenient. It shouldn’t be this way.
Even though everyone has lied at one time or another, that doesn’t make it right. We all should take honesty very seriously. Make a decision to be one of the people whose word is your bond, even if it brings you harm or is inconvenient. Make a commitment to be honest in all things. I believe you will be much better off for it in the long run.
