In the name of Jesus, help us to show our thanksgiving by minding our manners, speech, and attitudes. We need you dear Lord because we cannot be good all by ourselves. Also, please continue healing those with sickness or diseases and give them long life. We give you praise for these awesome blessings!
There is a horrible epidemic that’s been around for a long time and is infecting more and more people. What is this epidemic? The epidemic of lying. Yes, people are telling lies at the drop of a coin without any remorse of conscience about it. Throughout the Bible, we are warned to not tell lies and How God frowns upon lying. Proverbs 19:9 ESV says: A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish. John 8:44 explains that lying is a character trait of the devil. It tells us: He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Brothers and sisters, Proverbs 17:4 says an evildoer listens to wicked lips, and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue. Let us examine ourselves honestly and choose our words honestly and wisely as to not line up with the devil’s character trait. Psalm 101:7 assures us that: No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.
