Truth is so important to God. He is the “Way, the Truth, and the Life,” after all!
It’s not always easy to tell the truth, especially if it means getting into trouble, right? But God commands that we be honest.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor (Exodus 20:16).
Girls, there are so many reasons to get into the habit of being honest and not lie!
- It’s easy to lie, especially when you’d rather risk getting caught than telling the truth.
- The more you lie, the easier it gets, until you begin lying needlessly.
- When you lie, you have to continue lying in order to cover up the previous lies.
- Once those you lie to become aware of your dishonesty, they’ll eventually stop believing you, even when you’re telling the truth.
When you lie, you’ll usually get caught. And even if the person you lied to never finds out the truth, God already knows it. There’s no way you can deceive God!
We all should strive for integrity. When you’re known for your honesty, people hold you in higher regard. You’ll find that you have closer friendships and the people around you will recognize your honesty and aim to emulate it.
No one likes to be lied to, including you! Right?
