Lies create chaos.

Gratefully, I learned young lies only cause trouble. Telling the truth challenges the best of us, but in the long run, it pays off. You don’t have to remember what you said when you tell the truth. But when false tales come from your mouth, you must remember what you said and to whom.

“The truth is always quiet; it’s the lies that are loud.” Chuck Smith, Jesus Revolution

False narratives prevail in our society today. Social media enables lies to spread quickly without fact-checking. Often, people read the headlines without reading the story, believing a few words as truth. A bold type doesn’t equal honesty.

Over time, truth reveals itself. A cheating spouse eventually gets caught. A child with jam on their face will insist they didn’t eat the jelly.   And false narratives always get exposed in due time.

Speak the truth and escape trouble. Don’t let false tales lead you into dark places. Freedom comes with honest answers.

Lord, forgive us for lying and not using our words well. Please help us speak the truth in love, using language to uplift and encourage all we meet. Don’t let us fall into the traps wicked words bring. Instead, let us live fully in Jesus as we pursue truth through Him. IJNIP. Amen
