“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight” ― Proverbs 12:22
What happened to “Truth”? It used to matter a lot. I was raised by a mom who helped us understand that one of the most significant personality characteristics a person possessed is telling the truth. It was the one thing we had that no one could ever take from us. It’s tied to who we are as a people and who were to God.
The critical and fundamental concept has lost its luster and its power. Over the years, politicians have perfected being untruthful, and now over half of our society seems not to care or look away. That may be fine for many people in our community, especially as it has become politicized. However, the ultimate judge has a different view on a lying tongue (proverbs 6:16-19).
I am looking forward to the day when truth matters again when telling the truth will set us free!
