GUARD YOUR LIPS FROM TELLING LIES
When I was a young child, my parents bought a number of Scripture in Song music tapes distributed by Scripture in Song recordings Ltd. in New Zealand. These songs were taken straight from Scripture and recorded by David and Dale Garratt of New Zealand. We used to play and sing their music often in our home. They helped to instruct us as children in the right ways of living according to the word of the Lord and brought God’s presence both into our hearts and into our home. One of the songs I clearly remember learning was taken straight out of 1 Peter 3:10 (TLB). “If you want a happy, good life, keep control of your tongue, and guard your lips from telling lies, and guard your lips from telling lies, and guard your lips from telling lies, if you want a happy good life.” That particular song had made such an impact on my young life, because as a young child and for a period of time, I had been having great difficulty in the area of lying. It was a sin that had become progressively worse over a period of time.
