Proverbs 19:5 & 9A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape…
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
There used to be a saying when I was younger, “You will just lie your way into a big hole and then pull the dirt in on top of you with more lies.” Oh, how true this seems to be. One lie is told and then someone asks a question about that lie and another lie just a little bigger is told to cover up the first lie. Soon we find we are telling another lie, and then another, until it is so outrageous that even you cannot believe what is coming out of your mouth. At that point, your mind is constantly filled with wonderings of, “what did I tell them, or did I tell them this or that.” People begin to catch you in your lies and then they can never trust anything you say. Your family and friends who use to listen to you now take everything you say with a grain of salt.
I once heard someone ask the question, “If a liar says he is lying is he telling the truth?” What a terrible way to spend a life, especially when we do not have to. The Bible tells us God forgives us of our sins, but to be blessed in life by God we must quit living in our sin. How does a liar quit being a liar? Simple, they begin always to tell the truth. WOW, it is just that easy.
Jesus is all about the truth. In fact, the bible calls Him the Truth. In John 14:6 it says, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” It is so, so good to really KNOW THE TRUTH!
