An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Big Deal

(Pro 19:5 KJV) A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

Lying is a big deal.  We find all sorts of synonyms to take away the stigma.  Our culture seems to accept it and many of the cultures blending with the American stream seem to have no problem with it.  In spite of that, lying is a big deal.  It is one of the corrosive agents that is breaking down the fiber of our society.  Yet we still don’t like to call it out.

Think about the consequences of even little lies.  It means that we cannot trust the other person.  We cannot take their descriptions of events or the quality of their work.  Lies weaken the ties that hold us together.

So?  It is not mystery about why truth is so important to God’s kingdom and any earthly political entity that wants to prosper.
