Zechariah 8:16 - These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other...
Our dislike for the truth begins at a very small age. No one teaches us to tell a lie, but it comes to us quite naturally. I remember as a small kid one day while crawling on the floor, I pushed a brand new cupboard mirror and it fell on the floor and shattered into pieces. The sound of the breaking mirror instilled a kind of fear in me. That evening my Dad came in and saw what happened and enquired. Out of fear, I pointed my tiny fingers towards my elder brother, and made way to the first lie of my life (I guess :))
See! How treacherous is lie? As we grow up, it takes different dimensions and sometimes pushes us away from God.
We want our bosses to like us, so we flatter. God calls it a lie. We want people to admire us, so we exaggerate. God calls it a lie. We want people to respect us, so we live in houses we can’t afford and charge bills we can’t pay. God calls it living a lie.
One lie would make way for thousand lies so lets start to be truthful! Lets just be like Jesus and lets Tell the truth!
In Jesus' name. Amen
