Disgusting Lips

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A wise person once said, “A liar is not believed even when he speaks the truth.” Oh, how precious honesty really is.  To be trusted by your word is one of the highest principles of integrity.  The Bible says, “Lips that lie are disgusting to the Lord, but honest people are his delight.” – Proverbs 12:22 (GW).  God finds dishonesty as a disgusting and detestable practice.  He is not the only one that feels this way.  If you look through the headlines each year there are people who lose their jobs, their families, and even their freedom due to dishonesty.  Lying is very tempting when we are faced with the deception that it will keep us out of trouble.  However, every lie will eventually be reveled.  Many times these revelations happen in this life, but rest assured even those that aren’t revealed are known by our Holy God.  So dear friends, if you follow Jesus as your Lord and Savior, follow Him with your lips as well.  Remember honest people are His delight!
