If the lies we told left a taste in our mouth… it would be the horrible taste of the death we are speaking.If the lies we told left a taste in our mouth, and if the rumors we spread left stench on our breath, it would be the horrible taste and putrid smell of the death we are speaking. It would reek of decay. We would be unable to speak without fighting the urge to vomit.
Unkind words would be seen as rotting flesh, and none of us would dare to speak them, because the death hidden within our intentions would be revealed in disgusting way that it actually exists within our souls.
If we could see it, taste it and smell it, maybe we would finally repent of it.
