Truthful lips endure forever,
but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
(Proverbs 12:19 (NIV))
Truth stands the test of time; lies are soon exposed.
(Proverbs 12:19 (NLT))
If you stop to look at these two translations, at first it appears that they are saying something completely different. Reread the two translations and closely examine how each of these tell us what is on the heart of God.
Both translations give us firm wording that states that lies are temporary and that truth is eternal. Perhaps, we should take this to heart when we look at today’s society. The lies of the world seem to have many people fooled, yet, the Body of Christ seeks the truth behind the lies.
We have the truth!
The truth is the Word of God. John 1:14 tells us that:
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John 1:14 (NIV))
Even though Jesus was crucified on the cross, He arose. Jesus will endure forever. Satan, the father of all lies, is destined for the lake of fire. His time is short.
It should be our desire to earnestly seek the truth and to share this truth with others.
