“True, some of them were unfaithful; but just because they were unfaithful, does that mean God will be unfaithful? Of course not! Even if everyone else is a liar, God is true” (Romans 3:3-4a, NLT).

Ah, that wonderful time of year, when you can feel the dishonesty all around and lies are zinging back and forth like rockets. I’m talking about election time of course! I’ll be glad when it’s over just to get back to our normal level of half-truths, insults and deception.

Under the best of circumstances, it’s hard to know whom we can trust. Finding an honest plumber is hard enough, let alone a car dealer or politician. That’s why this verse is so reassuring. Even if everyone else is a liar (and aren’t we all?) God can be trusted. He doesn’t lie—in fact he can’t lie and is always faithful and true. He’s the rock of truth we can hold on to through the raging and perpetual storms of lies and deceit. Don’t let go!
