Tell the Truth (Proverbs 12)

with Ron Deal | November 7, 2019

Lying, breaking a promise, or deceiving someone-yeah, those are all good ways of destroying trust and adding distance to a relationship. Proverbs 12:22 tells us that "the Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in those who are truthful." We hurt our relationship with God when we're dishonest and we hurt earthly relationships, too. Many marriages and families are ripped apart by lies. I know the truth is very hard to say sometimes but telling the truth is always less harmful that a lie.
