Throttle Back

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. John 16:13

It seems like lying has become a national pastime. We lie about everything from our age to our résumé to our mother-in-law’s cooking. But God flat-out hates lying. He hates it because he is a truthful God, a transparent God. He is truth. And when we lie to each other, we are acting contrary to his character. In fact, when we lie, we are reflecting the personality of the evil one.

God will never prompt you to lie. The Holy Spirit will always lead you to the truth, but you have to be willing to follow. The choice is yours to make.

I challenge you in the coming days, when you are about to exaggerate or “stretch the truth” in a conversation, throttle back and take your cue from the Holy Spirit. Listen to what God is telling you and walk the path that glorifies him. Choose the truth, because life is too short to lie.

Prayer

Lord, thank you for consistently steering me towards truth. Help me to chart my course based on that compass. Help me to choose truth, in the all the decisions I face. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
