Lies

If any of us should say that we have never told a lie before then, we would know for sure that that person is a liar. People tell lies for different reasons. Some persons lie because they may be afraid of the repercussions of their actions, whereas some persons lie to make themselves look good. As a matter of fact, individuals lie so much that classification of lies has been developed.

Some persons, however, lie for seemingly no reason at all, they could be classified as habitual liars. Their new names should be Pinocchio.

Telling a lie whatever our justification maybe is just wrong!

Telling lies is like putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound. It may seem to help but leads to greater harm. As temporary solutions usually result in permanent problems. Telling lies about ourselves is wrong. However, telling lies about others is even more dangerous.

The Bible lets us know that “Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow.” Proverbs 25:18

 All of the above scenarios create great harm to an individual and the probability of the person dying from these actions is substantial. There is no need to lie about others to “tear them down” so that we can build up ourselves. Our goal should always be to lift up others. In building ourselves we should build others also. Therefore we should endeavor to speak the truth always.

There is a little memory gem that I learned from my grandmother. Something I have implemented in my life over the years. It says “speak the truth and speak it ever, let it cost what it will. For he who hide the wrong he does, does the wrong thing still.” It simply means that no matter what the consequence one should always speak the truth. If we lie then we will continue to do wrong.  It is a fact that whenever a lie is told then another has to be told to cover for the first. It is like a chain reaction of lies that will be unleashed. As such, to relieve ourselves of unnecessary burdens speak the truth. SPEAK THE TRUTH ALWAYS! Speak the truth also in love!

  1. Great post. Found you on the Meet and Greet. We couldn’t lie to my parents and the reason why? They knew you were lying and so they would ask you about something and if you lied they said nothing. A week or so later they woule ask you the same question and of course you can never remember a lie so you gave a different answer. The punishment was severe. You can never remember a lie so you might as well tell the truth from the start. I learned that lesson over 70 years ago. I passed it on to my children it works. ☺☺☺

  2. You are so right! Lies are lies no matter what. But, some people don’t seem to understand. It is deception! I often tell people that they may make a mistake, just confess it, don’t lie about it. Deception leads a person straight into the mouth of the dragon.
