A lie is a lie. There are no small lies and big lies. It is common nowadays to hear someone in Lagos telling the other person on the phone that he is in Abuja. That is indiscipline.
A very close friend of mine once told me of a screaming story which bordered on the use of communication gadgets to tell lies. He and some passengers were travelling from Lagos to Abuja by road. It happened that a fellow passenger who sat next to him did not spare a second in finding and using his phone to call and discuss with his people. When they got to Ore in Ondo State, the bus driver stopped for a while in order for the passengers to relax and ease themselves. After this period, the journey continued. Along the way, some armed bandits waylaid their vehicle and every passenger was rough handled. All the men were taken away including the one who used his phone to draw people’s attention. Meanwhile, he had used his phone to deceive his immediate elder and only brother. He had lied that their bus was in Ibadan, when actually they were in Ore. Their abductors ceased all their phones, took them to a spot in the jungle, but only provided them with a phone with which they all called their relations. When our friend, Brother John called his brother, the brother dismissed the message saying that the voice was not his brother’s and that his was not in Ore but in Ibadan.
The brother dropped his phone and went to sleep. While others were released after meeting the laid down conditions, Brother John could not bail himself until after three solid days when his abductors visited pity on him, stripped him of all his belongings and flogged him well. He would not have gone through all the harrowing experience if he had not told lies to his brother initially that he was in Ibadan. As a Christian, John ought to have embraced discipline as a Christian way of life. Beloved, honesty is an important Christian discipline. Let your Yes be Yes, and let your No be No.
HONESTY MEANS BEING FAITHFUL AND TRUTHFUL AT ALL TIMES.
The words of your mouth will always glorify God.
Father, let unnecessary distractions in my life die, in the name of Jesus.
All evil diversions in my way, be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
Any plan of the devil to use my property to destroy me, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
Father Lord, pave way for me where there is no way, in the name of Jesus.
I will not be a distraction for others, in the name of Jesus.
Father Lord, help me not to walk in the way of sinners, in the name of Jesus.
Every evil bird flying for my sake, crashland, in the name of Jesus.
