Lies and Nine Lives

January 25, 2011

“One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie,” said Mark Twain, “is that a cat has only nine lives.”

The Bible bears out the damage done in lying, both in its pronouncements against it and in its positive teaching about the power of truth.

Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 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 has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
(John 8:43-44, ESV)

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
(John 8:31-32, HCSB)

Live in the truth and speak truthfully today.
