The Worst Kind of Deception…. Self!
Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Meditate on verse 7.
Honesty has almost become a lost policy in these days. “Honesty is the best policy”, the old motto is still true today; though not much practiced. Is it obsolete?? Maybe so! If some people had their way they would certainly abolish it.
I have to mention the Clinton lie, but want to be very careful not to teach disrespect and yet God’s hatred for lying.
Some twenty years ago, on a talk show a Doctor said, “Lying is an important part of society …AND CHILDREN WHO ARE UNABLE TO LIE MAY HAVE DEVELOPMENT PROBLEMS.” I think this foolish Doctor has the biggest of development problems.
Please study Proverbs 12:17-22
Around the year 2000, U.S.A. TODAY Poll shows only 56% teach it to their children, and 65% of High School students would cheat on an important Exam; 59% thought that our President’s Clinton’s sin does not matter – just go on. Imagine what this same poll would show today.
Let’s learn to live honestly because it is still a good motto.
“IF YOU ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH YOU WILL NEVER BE TRAPPED BY A LIE.”
