Just yesterday I stretched the truth. Conviction set in. I knew deep down that I was lying to my friend and to myself.
I pray you will still read my posts knowing that I've lied, I'm a sinner. I'm ashamed of myself. I've quoted Proverbs 12:22 and Proverbs 6:16-17 to my son
lips are an abomination to the , but those who act faithfully are his delight.
haughty eyes, a lying tongue
I repented of my sin. Yes, the little white lie was a sin. A sin against God and my friend.
I praise God for showing me His love, grace, and mercy.
From now on, I will strive to speak the truth and not stretch it.
Have you told a little white lie?
