Truth vs Lies

Have you ever lied?  Have you ever been lied to?  The answer would be yes to both of those questions.  You don't set out to intentionally lie to someone and I don't think that someone sets out to intentionally lie to you.  It just happens with something like I don't want to hurt their feelings so this is what I will say.  Guess what you just told a lie.  The same thing happens when someone lies to you.  They don't set out to hurt your feelings or they may have done something they know would hurt you so they lie about it.  Does everyone remember the Veggie Tale "The Fib From Outer Space?"  When you start telling lies you have to continue to lie and the small lie, told in the beginning, becomes larger and larger until you can no longer control it.  The lie begans controling your life and all those you love.  Lies can destroy careers, friendships, and families.  Life would have been so much simpler if we just told the truth in the beginning.

Psalm 15
1 LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?
2 The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.
