if there is one action I have zero tolerance for it’s lying. big ones, little ones, intentional or non-intentional. lies to make yourself look good or even lies that seem to protect you or someone you love. I like the way Billy Graham defines “a lie is anything contrary to the naked truth.” now, I’ve done my fair share (as I’m sure many of us have) but have also experienced first hand the anguish that results from even the most innocent of fibs. it is because of this experience I’ve developed an intolerance of lying. the truth of the matter is: lies hurt.
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices (Colossians 3:9 NIV)
