Davidisms - A Hard Truth Is Always Better Than a Greasy Lie

“The truth hurts.” It’s a saying we’ve all heard from time to time. Scripture commands us to speak the truth - in love - to one another (Eph. 4:15). And sometimes, hearing the truth can hurt - especially if we are living in sin, outside of God’s boundaries. One of the purposes of the Holy Spirit is to convict us of sin (John 16:8). And when he does, it hurts! But a hard truth is always better than a greasy lie. While a greasy lie may feel good in the moment, it fails to confront the issue. Perhaps providing a way for us to slide through life for a while. But in the end, lies - even “small” ones - do you no good. Lies are inherently destructive. They have to be. Look at their source - Satan himself - the father of all lies (John 8:44). Deceit is his forte. Your destruction is his goal (John 10:10). Praise God for honest, truthful people and friends in your life! Make sure you listen regularly to pastors who teach you God’s truth. Truth that may hurt for a moment, but ultimately leads you to repentance and God’s great grace. For a hard truth is always better than a greasy lie.
