It seems to me lies don’t go in a straight line; they go in a wide arc around the truth, and eventually come full circle to bite you on the behind. The circle can keep going forever if you can manage to stay one step ahead of the last lie and not bump into the first one.
Wouldn’t life be much simpler if we just told the truth and didn’t do things we had to lie to cover up? Focus on the truth. Walk the line and stay out of that vicious circle.
God hears every word and sees everything we do; He even knows our thoughts. So, you might fool some of the people some of the time, but you can never fool God. And… He’s really the only one that matters.
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Luke 12:3
