Liar Liar Pants on Fire

It's not fun to be reminded of the humbling fact that everyone needs to be prompted, indeed, regularly goaded, to be truthful in our speech and in our hearts. All of us are susceptible. We all know what it's like to take refuge in the escape route of lying. When it goes unchecked, we hardly even notice how far we have drifted.

That quote comes from an article in Christianity Today about how we lie more than we think, about our use of time and our intentions.

What follows is a thought-provoking discussion of lying, sin, the deceitfulness of our own hearts and the character of God. How those little white lies might be a sign of our being too lazy to speak the truth in love. Read it and be challenged
