Little White Lies
“A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will not go free.”
In our permissive society, which is becoming more and more evil, people do not hesitate to tell lies, to either get out of uncomfortable situations, or simply to keep from hurting the feelings of others. The Bible gives us many scriptures about lying, and warns us that lies can severely hurt and damage the lives of others. Good reputations have been ruined by lies, and even families torn apart and marriages ruined. Lying is a sin, and many people think little about lying. Even the so called “little white lies” are sins. God wants us to be truthful at all times, and tells us that the words that come out of our mouth, is generated from what is in our hearts. I have seen statistics that state that one innocent white lie, may result in as many as 6 other lies to cover up the original lie. This is a slippery slope that so many people get caught up in, as one sin leads to another and then another. As Christians, we are to be the examples for others around us, but if we are caught telling even the little innocent white lies, we are not being the examples of what God wants us to be. We are no different than other people, when we are caught in a lie. We need to be different and tell the truth in all situations. I realize that God may not judge us as harshly as if we committed murder, but lying is still a sin in God’s eyes, and if we continue to sin in this way, we are not following His commands. God tells us to remove all sin from our life, and the little white lies are still sins in His eyes. I would encourage each of you to think about what you say. Let your words be truthful at all times.
