Proverbs 12:22 niv


Lying is sometimes easier than telling the truth.
Sometimes a lie seems kinder than the truth.
However, once the lie is told it is like a weed that takes over
a garden putting down deep spreading roots that are hard
to pull up and eradicate without destroying some of the good plants.
The Lord hates a lie knowing that it destroys the good to get its way
and He loves the truth knowing it builds up and sustains all it touches.

What do you think is most often the reason for a lie?
Who do you lie to?  Others, yourself, God? Why?
