Watch Your Mouth!

Welcome to your daily dose of wisdom, courtesy of the New Life Version (Bible). Today we’re continuing our series on how to live a life of integrity by diving into Proverbs 12:22.

The Lord hates lying lips, but those who speak the truth are His joy.

As you can see, God has a deep disdain for lies. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little white lie, a big fat lie, or the oh-so-popular “I didn’t lie…I just didn’t tell them everything” kind of lie.

When someone lies to their spouse about an affair, God hates it just as much as when they claim to be sick as a way to miss a day of work…it’s all the same.

God hates all of it.
