      Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies"
      Psalm 34:13  

      Have you noticed that lying has become acceptable in our culture? Or does it just seem that way to me? Every day, the newscasters have their own spin on stories; adults cheat on their spouses or income tax forms; students cheat in school; padding a person's resume is normal. And there are gray areas like, "I like your shoes" or "I am sorry, but he is not available." Not true.

      Who are we taking our direction from? The Lord is the Truth. (John 14:5) Satan is the father of lies. (John 8:44)

      Lying is wrong and does not please God. We cannot lie and be filled with His Spirit at the same time. Jesus said, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth" (3 John 1:4).

      Being truthful pleases the Lord and He hates lies. "The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful" (Proverbs 12:22).

      How can we change our complacency about lying?

      1.    Ask God to search our hearts and confess the sins He points out. (1 John 1:9)
      2. Be controlled and directed by the Holy Spirit

      3. Read the Bible every day – fill your mind with Truth.
      4. Obey the Lord. Ask Him to enable you to be Truthful.
      5.    Pray for others who have made a habit of lying

      Father, lying has become a way of life for so many people, including many Christians. Cleanse our hearts, Oh Lord! Let nothing but the truth cross our lips. Let there be revival in our hearts and in Your church, Lord Jesus. Amen
