Geppeto makes a wooden puppet that’s magically given life. Only problem is Pinocchio can’t stop lying. Each time he lies, his nose grows longer. Imagine if that happened each time we lied, told a half-truth or deceived someone. How long would your nose be?
Did you know that the devil’s native language is lying “for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44 – http://bit.ly/2wG6r4z)? “The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful” (Proverbs 12:22 – http://bit.ly/2hmvS4i). I really want God to delight in me – don’t you? Please, Lord, help me to speak the truth in love this week.
