Ephesians 4:25 says,”So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body.” This is another way to guard your heart and life. Stop telling lives. Lies can destroy relationships and prevent successes. However, there are never any benefits to lying. Sure a short term lie can provide temporary benefits, but it will not give any eternal, lasting rewards. One must tell the truth to really experience the love of God. Even if you do get away with a lie, you will still regret it and live with the guilt.
Is this something you tend to struggle with? Maybe you are struggling with something big and you cannot move forward until you are not tied to the lies you have told.
