Scripture for Today

John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”




A clergyman man was walking down the street when he came upon a dozen boys. They were surrounding a dog. Concerned he went over and asked, “what are you doing with that dog?”

One of the boys replied, “He’s an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we’ve decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog”.

Of course the Reverend was taken aback. “You boys shouldn’t the having a contest of telling lies!” he exclaimed. He then launched into a ten minutes sermon beginning with, “don’t you boys know that it is a sin to lie?” and ending with, “why, when I was your age, I never told a lie.”

There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the Reverend was beginning to think he’d gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, “All right, give him the dog.”

 Even though telling the truth is the best thing to do, we discover there are fewer people towing that path daily. Jesus knowing that we would be confronted with circumstances that would try our integrity admonished we tell the truth and nothing but the truth.

White lies leave black marks on your reputation. You can’t stretch the truth without making your story look pretty thin, and when you stretch the truth, it snaps back at you. Lies have destroyed relationships and familiar. Lies has caused so many young people to loose treasures that God has in stock for them. Telling a lie can surely led you to telling more lies but the truth gives you freedom.

Having a culture for saying the truth always will certainly make people or your future spouse trust you so much. As singles, let's always speak the truth no matter what.
I encourage you always tell the truth, and you never have to remember what you said.

Prayer: Father, may I speak the truth at all times and in all places.
