Dealing with Deception — Growing Christians Ministries

For your consideration…

Why lie when the truth will do?

Why do people lie? We lie to make themselves seem bigger or more to other people. We lie to hide something. We lie because it is easier than dealing with the fallout if we tell the truth. We lie because we do not want to face the consequences of our actions. The bottom line is we lie out of fear. We fear people will see us for who we really are. We lie because we feel ashamed of something we did. ETC…

Our message today reminds us that we are enough. We are never given more than we can handle. Our truth and our love is our biggest asset. They are the only weapons we need.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
