16 Jun Matthew 12:36

36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.

This really puts everything in perspective within all the commandments, but especially that of lies. It’s clear that we will all stand before God and give an account for our lives, but also for every careless word we speak. This is the picture we must have in front of us, we must have this mindset knowing lies are worth it. Many times, the truth is much easier to tell than a lie, but we believe the consequences will be worse. The truth is better than a lie in any circumstance because a lie is full of deceit and will always come back around even if it takes a while.
