12 Worthless, wicked people go around telling lies.
How many of you have ever lied? How many of you have ever lied about someone? How many have ever told a lie just to get even or damage a person due to jealousy? Hmm, there are probably not very many that would raise their hand or own up to it. Not many would want to be known that it happened or that they actually did something like that.
How many of you maybe haven't lied to go to quite that dramatic of a length... but have lied to "fit in"? Have you lied to embellish a story, or make it "more interesting"? Have you repeated gossip that is unverified or unnecessary because it made you seem better or in the know? Like you are on the inside and you make people feel like they should be on the outside?
How many of you listen to lies? Do you let others lie and gossip about your mutual friends? Do you tell one thing to one friend, and then play the other side of the fence? Do you create lies of omission by keeping silent when you hear a blatant untruth about someone you know? Do you just laugh and keep drinking to "fit in" with the crowd?
The bottom line is that lies are lies. God sees you. Others see you. I see you. Be careful out there...
