Psalm 109:2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
Don’t you just hate it when people lie? They just cannot seem to tell truth. No matter how hard they try, they always seem to stretch the truth to a point where hardly anyone could possibly believe them. Then when they do tell the truth, no one does believe them.
What seems even worse is when they begin to lie about you. They might tell only half-truths or exaggerate the truth. It seems almost unbelievable that they would do such a thing. Suddenly, you find yourself wanting to get even, to hurt them back. Well, I am going to tell you how to do just that. Prepare to get even with these people.
First, live a separated life. What is a separated life? It is a life in which, it is hard to find fault. One separated from the world and their sinful ways. Separated to the Lord and His heavenly ways. Then no one who truly knows you would ever believe the lies someone else would tell and it is going to look bad on them.
Second, take it to the Lord. Do not try to get even, get back, or get over on someone. Let God handle it. He knows both you and them far better than you do.
Finally, pray for them and invite them to church. If you genuinely want a liar to quit lying, they will need to have a change of heart, not just a change of mind. The best way to get rid of an enemy is to make them your friend.
Could you imagine if someone were to say right up front when they first begin to tell stories on you something like, “You know so and so, that Christian, well you are not going to believe this but…” Did you hear it? Are you laughing? First, they have labeled you as a Christian, and then told the other person what was going to happen. “You’re not going to believe this…” and because of your life in Christ, well, they won’t.
