Listen to the Word
The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful. (Proverbs 12:22)

The contrast in today’s verse is stark and complete. We read that lying is disgusting to God, but honesty is delightful to him.

We are often casual with the truth. We excuse ourselves, calling it exaggeration, inaccuracy, misremembering, or creative license. But the Bible calls it lying, and the Bible calls it sin. Jesus said that lying is the native language of the Devil - he said the Devil is a liar and the father of lies. Jesus, on the other hand, is THE TRUTH. When we speak the truth, we honor him and we bring joy to God.

Live the Word
As you pray today, address God as “God of Truth.”
