If you listen to lies, then you’re more likely to tell them. In short, lies make you stretch the truth. About who you are. About what you’re doing. Lies are what got Adam and Eve in Big Trouble. And we’re no different today.
Knowing The Truth – about Who Jesus is and who you are – will stretch you. More than you can ever imagine. And in better ways than you can imagine.
When you persistently insist on preserving your old ways – of seeing, thinking, and talking about yourself and others – the stretching will be painful. Guaranteed.
Jesus said, “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” Matthew 9:16-17
