Friends Never Joke About Lying

We should not lie and should never joke about lying to friends. Here, then, is a partial litmus test for true friendship. Passing this test is no guarantee of true friendship, but failing it is surely a sign of false friendship.

Proverbs 26:18, 19 NLT

“Just as damaging as a madman shooting a deadly weapon is someone who lies to a friend and then says, “I was only joking.””
