Truth or Consequences
In the movie, “Liar Liar”, Jim Carrey plays the character of a father who constantly breaks promises to his son.
His son makes a wish that for one day his father cannot tell a lie and surprisingly his wish comes true.
Although this is a funny movie, we know that it is not very funny when we are the victims of someone else’s lies.
There is one person, however; who will never lie to you. God is absolute truth. Jesus said “I came to bring truth to the world. (John 18:37).
Sometimes the truth hurts. There are times when I hear a sermon preached and shout “Amen”, but on the inside I am saying “Ouch!”
Let us be thankful for those who speak the truth in love. They help shape our lives for the better if we are willing to listen.
