Albert Einstein, said, “The truth is like a lion.  It doesn’t need defending.  Let it loose.  It will defend itself.”  Mark Twain said, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”  The truth is refreshing no matter how hard it might be to tell, especially when setting it straight.  Deceptions create distance and disrespect within relationships.   Not feeling at liberty to trust someone’s words is painful.   Giving false witness hurts the person who has been deceived more than the liar.  One feels like a fool for believing a false friend’s dishonesty.  It’s been said that a half truth is still a whole lie.   A true friend tells the truth.    There is never a good reason to lie and this is why.  You are a treasured possession to God.  He made you the way you are.  He loves you more than the universe He created.  Actually, He made the world for you.  So saying or believing fictious things is an abomination toward Him.  You spit on God when you distort and fabricate information.  The message is that what God made wasn’t great enough so it needs to be embellished upon.  The bible says that our eyes have been blinded from the beginning by the devil’s temptations that led to the act of human disobedience.  So if our eyes are shut until the Lord reveals the truth, does it mean that we don’t have to come clean once we’ve become aware?  If the Truth sets you free, should you do the same for those that you’ve lied to?  The honest answer is “Yes.”
