The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful. Proverbs 12:22
The old joke can be told about lawyers (among others), “how can you tell a politician is lying?” His lips are moving. You see, it’s not just that a politician lies, but he/she lies often enough that he is stereotyped for it.
We chuckle because there’s a grain of truth to it. But what about you? Told any fibs lately? Stretched the truth? The out and out lies are difficult to avoid, primarily because we can more easily be found out.
But we need to steer far away from half-truths and inuendo. While it’s tempting to walk down that path in certain situaitons, the truth will win out in the long run.
