Just A Little Lie

Key Verse

“Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.” Psalm 119:29

Text — Psalm 119:25-32


Lying is to make a statement that is not true in order to deceive the hearer. Speaking half-truth by deliberately keeping away important information is also lying. According to the book of Proverbs, one of the things God hates is a lying tongue (Proverbs 6:16-17). A child that tells lie cannot be trusted or relied upon. The word of a liar keeps changing. One thing about lying is that when you tell one lie, you will need another lie to cover it up. The sin of lying whether little or big is a very common one but very deadly too.

Many children are guilty of the sin of lying. But why do children lie? Some children tell lies to: (i) get out of trouble (il) avoid punishment for the wrong they have done. (iii) cover up their failures or protect their friends. (iv) protect their pride. Whatever reason any child has for telling lies, everyone should know that God hates lying and He will punish all liars. The question is this, is it possible to be free from the sin of lying? The answer is YES. A genuine experience of salvation is the sure solution to lying. A truly born-again child cannot be a liar. If you are still lying then you need to be genuinely born-again. When? Now. Surrender your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ today.
