The Weighty Depth of Little Lies.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Today I want to speak to you on the weighty depth of little lies. The old saying goes, "A little white lie never hurt anyone." However, we know that this is not true. Even the tiniest lies, the ones we may think don't matter, can have profound consequences.


In Proverbs 12:22, we read, "Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight." This scripture tells us that lying is not something that pleases God. It is considered an abomination, meaning it is detestable or repulsive to Him.


Moreover, In John 8:44, we see that lying is a characteristic of the devil. Jesus Himself said, "You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and did not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Therefore, he speaks out of his character when he lies, for he is a liar and the father of lies".


So we can see that lying is not pleasing to God and is characteristic of the devil. Therefore, We should be mindful of what we say and truthful in our dealings with others.


The consequences of lying can also be far-reaching and sometimes even devastating. Think about the pain and hurt that can be caused when someone is lied to. Trust is broken, relationships are damaged, and sometimes lives are destroyed.


But it's not just the big lies that can have devastating consequences. The little lies we tell can also have a cumulative effect. We may think that telling a small lie, like exaggerating a little on our CV (Curriculum Vitae is Latin for "course of life.") or telling a white lie to avoid hurting someone's feelings, is harmless. But these "little lies" can accumulate and lead to a lack of trust and integrity.


In Matthew 5:37, Jesus tells us, "Let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No.'" This scripture reminds us to be truthful in all our dealings with others. We should not be people who have to qualify or justify what we say because we know that it is not entirely true.


In conclusion, the depth of little lies is not something we should take lightly. We must be truthful in all our dealings with others, whether big or small. We should never forget that lies do not please God and can devastate our relationships and lives. Therefore, let us make a firm commitment to be people of integrity and truthfulness in all our dealings with others.


May God bless you all.


Amen.
