Touch of Encouragement for you _______ and this verse from Proverbs tells us that behind a lying tongue is hatred, and flattery from someone like this will only work ruin. In today’s world, lying has become a plague that is grieving the heart of God. It is not only rampant in society, but it has also spread among God’s own people. Even God’s ministers are not immune and many of them are infected with it. Honor Is Not Fitting for a Fool: 26: 28 A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it, and a flattering mouth works ruin. (Proverbs 26:28) (Read Proverbs 26:1-28) Lying, according to some people, is considered rather harmless. Reference is even made to telling little “white lies.” Supposedly, these kinds are O.K. These encompass speaking flattering words and compliments without really meaning them. Lying is now so commonplace that people are deceived into just accepting it as normal, instead of recognizing and resisting it. The practice of lying and dishonesty is now epidemic in our world. People lie and cheat on their income tax forms. People cover their adulterous affairs with lies. People lie about being ill in order to take off work. People lie when confronted with mistakes they have made, blaming others. People lie in order to get a promotion or favor. People lie to in order to get out of jams. People lie about others in order to get elected. The list could go on. (B. Miller) Lying is a sin that leads to other sins. In fact, when someone tells a lie, then they have to tell other lies to cover that lie. Today’s study tells us that when someone lies about another, they really hate them. The Bible tells us that hatred is really murder in someone’s heart. We can see the progression – telling a lie, embracing hatred in one’s heart, and then an actual murder can follow those two sins. This is why lying is so deadly. (B. Miller) The bottom line is this: On the positive side, the Bible tells us that truth will end up prevailing over a lie. It is always better to tell the truth, as truth will ultimately endure over all lies. The Bible tells us that Jesus and His Word are truth. Therefore, if I give my life to Christ and practice His Word, I will be able to walk in the truth and tell the truth. ><))))2020-166*>
