So Many Lies
Tell the Truth Always…
Do you tell the truth, always tell the truth?
That is a tough question for some people because of the word always. Always defines character and character defines who we are when we know that we won’t get caught. Character has also been defined like this. It is the person you are when you know that no one is looking. Which is true, but I think there is more truth in the statement it is who we are when we know we will not get caught.
What do people lie about? Well that is easy everything, people lie about everything! But what about you? What do you lie about?
After you answer that question the next thing to process is why do you lie about that?
Here are the the top 10 Reasons people lie:
but he delights in men who are truthful. God really, really has a problem with lies. So what is it about lies or lying that attracts us to lie? I think when you look to the very root of a lie, it has a lot to do with how we feel about ourselves. It also has a lot to say about our relationship with God. We lie to change things or cover up things that we don’t like about ourselves. So the root is how do we see ourselves. How do you see yourself? Think about everything that you do, why do you do you do those things? What drives you to do them? It sounds complicated but really it is all rooted in how do you feel about yourself. If you were to define yourself what would you say about you? Would you lie in your definition, or could you define yourself with only the truth. Lying is a problem and if you have ever been lied to then you know first hand that it is not a good thing. So then why do we do it, and why do others do it. There is the top 10 list, but I think that it is a problem with how well do we like ourselves and how well do we like others for who they are. God delights in men who are truthful! God delights in people who know who they are happy with who they are. These people don’t need to lie.
