“Walking In the Way of Truth”

walking in the way of truth

by Dona Hake

The other day I had the Andy Griffith show on and Andy was caught in a lie by his son Opie. Andy proceeding to squirm out of the whole thing by using the excuse that it was just a “white lie.” “You should never lie Opie besiides what I spoke was a “white lie” and that is different.” As little Opie kept pressing what the difference was, Andy finally broke down and admitted how wrong he was.
I hear this “white lie” thing a lot and quite honestly it makes my skin crawl. I was a bit amused by it’s definition. It is no wonder that people live in confusion over what is right and what is wrong in a time of crisis. When you live an immerse yourself in truth, you will quickly discern truth from your emotions and opinions.


White lie:

“A minor or unimportant lie, esp one uttered in the interests of tact or politeness.”

When one permits ANY kind of untruths to dwell in their heart it surely is not a good thing and it will never produce good. As we permeate ourselves with God’s Word and desire all of His truth, we will embrace the importance to seek truth and nothing but the truth. It will become such a priority to us, and our hearts will be pricked at the very thought of thinking or speaking anything other than truth no matter how big or small it may appear.
I believe that the Lord desires that truth should reign above your opinions, desires, feelings and emotions. It is as we regard His Word that we will be able to sort lies from truths and you will live and speak in the freedom of truth.



2 Corinthians 10:5   (VOICE)

“We are demolishing arguments and ideas, every high-and-mighty philosophy that pits itself against the knowledge of the one true God. We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One.”
