Proverbs 12:22 The LORD detests lying lips,
but he delights in those who tell the truth.
Imagine that...God is happy about those who tell the truth! We live in a world where there are many who bend the truth ever so slightly. But know this, a subtle bending of the truth is the definition of "deception". The enemy of our soul is always trying to get us to push the envelope and to shade the truth. Our goal should be to be truthful at all costs, to live a life full of integrity and loyalty. Truth will always rise to the surface in every situation so its always best to start with it. In fact, it was Mark Twain that encouraged us to "always tell the truth and then you won't need to remember what you said!"
Truth is a tremendous liberator. Try to speak the truth in love whenever you can and watch God smile on you!
