God Blessed Morning Family!
To tell a lie is to not only deceive those in which you share the false information with but to also hinder yourself. For this form of deception does not benefit your Soul. Some feel that in telling a lie it will help them achieve greater things or status in Life, but as we face the reality of what lying does we come to an understanding that it only brings temporary results and in the end if we only told the truth in the beginning and faced the consequences at that moment we would not Live in peril wondering if and when it will be discovered that we were not honest from the beginning. To lie is to falsify information and it is this act in which God spoke to Moses because it is not only defining of a man's character but also of his Soul and Faith in God, " Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord." Leviticus 19:11-12. For when we lie we are saying we not only fear the outcome of telling the truth we also lack Faith in what God can do for us when we tell the truth. For when we tell a lie it will haunt and keep us entrapped for years for we fear that eventually the truth will be told, but when we tell the truth we only have to deal with the immediate outcome. For what we do in the dark will come to Light, for He Sees and Knows all, and even when we choose to lie to one another we can never lie to Him, for to tell Him a lie is to only deceive ourselves. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
