Think about it. Are you keeping family secret? Have you been holding your tongue to not rock the boat when you have a conversation with someone and they totally change their answer when someone else enters the room? Are you having to change things that you are comfortable with in order to not let the lie be exposed?
When we lie or someone lies to us it alters so much in our lives. It takes away a freedom that we have and the freedom the other person has as well. We end up forming false impressions of people and then wonder why we are resentful when we don’t get the response we think we should.
I learned through a speaker that when someone has hurt you with a lie, you need to save face with them. To protect them. However there are times when we just need to pray that it gets exposed because we are tired of having to work out what was said to us to begin with.
I’m going to be writing more on this topic in the later weeks. Its something that needs to be addressed if we are to walk fully in the footsteps of Christ.
