Liars,Wolves,and the Swine
I DESPISE LIARS....
Ok, that was probably a pretty bold statement, but it's been on my mind the last few days. I started thinking about this the other day when I sat out at the lake and had lunch.
I don't understand the human
race and our lack of follow through. I remember hearing stories (back in the day) of how a person's words carried weight and how their actions spoke of their character. Where is thy now? I feel like that doesn't exist now. A person's words are only good in the moment.. We live in this false world we have created and in order to continue in it we continue to live and make false promises and tell half truths...I don't understand...
Actually, I do understand it, it's a heart condition. Our hearts are defective apart from the Great Physician. I think the thought of liars hits me so much because I am one, and I hate that. I strive daily, but I definitely fall short. I'm not writing so that you think to yourself," I'm a horrible person," but I do write this so that you say," I am a sinner in need of a Saviour!" I have been constantly hit with a few verses over the past few weeks that I am trying to live out...
"Let your speech always be gracious,seasoned with salt,so that you may know how you ought to answer each person." Colossians 4:6
" let your "yes" be yes and your "no" be no,so that you may not fail under condemnation. " James 5:12
But I think, no, I know that there is hope...
I think the change or transformation happens when we are connected to the Source. I was talking to my 11th grade girls in Sunday school about this. I think when we are daily going before the throne and laying our lives before Him then that's where change happens. We start to see things and people as Christ does, respond as He would, and feel as He would. It seems like the times when I fall into this liar category are times when I am concerned for myself first and only.
These are just random thoughts that were eating at me. I had to get them out so I picked this outlet.
What are your thoughts??
