“Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.” (I Peter 3:11 NIV)
Let’s be honest. Many people speak deceitfully and lie to each other everyday without even thinking about what we are doing. But the Bible teaches that lying is sin.
As Christians we need to be very careful to not tell lies, even about little things. If we are untruthful about the little things, unbelievers will not trust us when we tell them about Jesus. Nor will they trust the God of the Bible if the followers of the Bible are deceitful.
