Truth vs. Lies

The fact is, truth is your truest friend, no matter what the circumstances are. (Abraham Lincoln)

How many people have stumbled over this simple principle? We try to make lies more acceptable by calling them “fibs” or “white lies,” but that doesn’t change the fact that they are, at least in part, untrue. If you always stick with the truth, you don’t have to follow up with more deceit to cover your dishonesty. As Lincoln says, “Truth is your truest friend.”

Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed. . .The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth. (Proverbs 12:19, 22)
