Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

The word “lie” appears exactly twice in 1 John (NIV).

If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth (1 John 1:6).

I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth (1 John 2:21).

What I appreciate about this image is that it is not immediately obvious that the word “liar” is written in script.

I’ve experienced this in my own life. Even in the midst of telling a lie, I’ve convinced myself that it isn’t really a lie or that it’s for the other person’s good.

But in reality, when I lie it’s for selfish motivations. I just try to put a good face on it.
