Little White Lies

Is it ever acceptable for mature Christians to tell little white lies ? No, absolutely not. The Bible is clear on this. In Ephesians 4:15, we are commanded to speak the truth in love. But what about if we injure someone’s feelings ? People are responsible for their own feelings.

My friend Helen always spoke the truth, in love. She disliked answering machines, and refused to speak into them. Helen’s truth concerning this matter is also my truth. I never leave messages. I also do not have Voice Mail on my telephone. It is joyful living a life free of answering machines.
