Measure of a Lie measures a man or woman!
How does one measure a Lie?
God Hates Lies! Proverbs 6:16 records this fact for us.
The Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos reveals in Revelation 21:27 the outcome of falsehood. Also in Revelation 22:14,15 John gives a contrast between a lie and truth.
As I ponder and meditate the measure of A Lie, I ask some questions of myself and of others.
How generous are we with our lies when giving them to others?
Do we lie to Ourselves? To our Mother and Father? To our Children? To a Husband or Wife? To other Family members? To Friends? To our Co-workers or Employers?
Do we balance our lies while speaking with others while wanting a lie from them for ourselves? Ephesians 4:25 prohibit us from speaking a lie to others.
Just how does one measure a Lie?
Truth makes one free, so it would stand to reason a lie would make one a prisoner of self.
We have great potential to enlarge our dreams, live our hopes, live longer
and healthier with positive truthful thoughts and actions. While living a lie
will cage our potential into a вЂњweb of liesвЂќ locking the door of truth.
A Lie is like a crochet chain without the chain there would be no foundation and you could not bring forth a work of art.
Truth is a pearl of wisdom set in a glorious work of artвЂ¦.
One Lie links to another Lie and we continue with ours and allow others to add theirs to our lie to make a scheme and we become a great big Lie.
Wonder why God, Our Heavenly Father, hates lies so much? (John 8:44) We are told that Satan, the devil himself is the father of all lies. We find Satan wins us over with the beauty of his lies.
Satan surely had and has a chain of schemes for all of GodвЂ™s children. His scheme is to make a beautiful wrap all for himself and wrap us warmly with him.
When you wrap yourself in Satan and his lies you lose control of just who
you are and your goals and dreams. You just gave Satan complete control of your life.
Satan feeds you, nourishes you and takes care of you as one of his children.
Are you a Pearl of great value set in Wisdom of truth or are you a lie linked to a chain of fools?
