LESSON FOR WEEK (July 30 - Aug 5)
Don't Lie For Any Reason
Scriptures Related To The Topic:
Colossians 3: 9
:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
Take a hard look at the reality of a lie! A lie is like reaching empty hands out to a man dying of thirst in a very hot, dry desert, trying to make him believe you are giving him cooling, life saving water. A lie is completely void; empty; nothing at all. Although a lie changes nothing, it does have consequences. That is; it can evoke strong feelings, that always end in negative actions. For instant; the thirsty man, in his desperation for water, may reach out believing you to be truthful. But, he will soon learn that your offer is empty; void; nothing, just a lie...he's still dying of thirst, with no water available. The reality of being lied to, sets off emotions of different and varying degrees. He could get angry, and strike out at the liar, maybe harming him in some way. He could just feel hurt, and wonder why you would play such a dirty trick on him. But, no matter what happen, the lie did what lies always does; harm someone, in some way. Always keep in mind; a lie will never help, or improve, any situation. No matter how beautiful, or fabulous a lie is at the outset; it will always fade into an ugly disaster.
