A “Truthful” Lie

Read: Proverbs 26:22-28

All lies are sinful, but some are more damaging than others. For example, it is much more harmful to say something untrue about a person than to claim that a fish you caught was very big when it was no more than 6 inches long. Maybe the worst kind of lie is the one that is intended to destroy the character of another. It can even take the form of “telling the truth,” but doing so in a way that suggests something false.
