John 8:44 – The Father of Lies

John 8:44
44
 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

-Let this be a reminder of why lies are so dangerous.  It would have been bad enough if the human race had created lies, but the true father of lies is no less than Satan himself.  Think about that word- “father”.  Satan is more than just the creator or originator of lies, he is their father.  This is why there can be no such thing as “little white lies”.  Even if a lie starts small, it is not Satan’s desire that it stays that way.  Just as parents nurture their children and desire to see them grow up big and strong, so too does Satan nurture lies and desire to see them grow to be big and strong.  Big enough and strong enough to wreck friendships, split homes and destroy lives.
