The Lies We Tell Day 6: Scripture Portion to Meditate
Let’s think on these portions of Scripture as we consider the lies we tell, the Savior we serve, and how we can be more like Him…
Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue. (Psalm 120:2, ESV)
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. (Proverbs 12:22, ESV)
Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. (Colossians 3:9-10, ESV)
As we’ve looked at lying this week, our prayer is that our hearts would be more aware of the words we speak, and that we would be convicted of any lying we have allowed to creep in. If you are aware of lies you’ve told, may this prompt you to confess and ask forgiveness, allowing Christ to wipe the slate clean. As believers, we want to be characterized by honesty, integrity and trustworthiness. This means there is no room for dishonesty in our lives. Ever. May we move forward from this study with an intentional approach to be honest, and in doing so, bring honor to our Savior.
