“The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.”
Proverbs 12:22 NLT

“The Lord detests.” Those three words should get our attention. “Detests” is another word for “hates.” And if God hates something, that should be our cue to stay as far from it as we possibly can.

Here God is telling us that He detests lying lips. You will notice that He does not distinguish between different types of lying. It is all the same to Him. There is no such thing as a “harmless, little white lie.” As far as God is concerned, there is the truth and then there is everything else.

The reason God has such a strong reaction to lying is that He Himself is truth. His Word is the truth. Every word that comes from Him can be trusted. Every promise He makes will be fulfilled. If we can not depend on Him, we can not depend on anyone or anything.

Folks, as believers, we represent Him in this world. That is why it is important for us to love and honor the truth as much as God does. Think about this…. If we can not be trusted in our everyday words, how can we be trusted when we tell others about Jesus?
