18 Telling lies about others
is as harmful as hitting them with an ax,
wounding them with a sword,
or shooting them with a sharp arrow. ~ Proverbs 25:18
Once a lie is spoken about someone it can NEVER be undone. The damage is done and the people who hear the lies will not look at this person the same again. The truth is it is as harmful and hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword or shooting them with sharp arrow, it does not kill them but wounds them for life, leaves a scare that will be with them for life.
Usually when we lie about someone the motive is purely selfish, it’s always to make ourselves look better. It is a matter of pride, low self esteem and a dishonest heart. Always speak the truth — ALWAYS — even if it hurts or it’s very hard, in the end when all is said and done, nobody is hurt.
Break PRIDE in your life, it’s the root of all sins and shortcomings, it’s the ruin of friendships, families and marriages.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today.
