There is simply no way to undo the mischief a lie can produce. (Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship)
After his conversion, Chuck Colson, acknowledged the error of his conduct as a politician and government official and the suffering he had caused others. Later, he faced the consequences of lies told to discredit his new way of life and ministry. Little white lies can lead to a life-long habit of deception, and that’s not easily changed. Just ask Colson!
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)
