BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, WE MUST GROW UP IN EVERY WAY INTO HIM WHO IS THE HEAD, INTO CHRIST. EPHESIANS 4:15

LORD GOD, WHEN I'M TEMPTED TODAY TO AMEND THE TRUTH ABOUT SOMETHING TO PRESERVE MY IMAGE, HELP ME TO REMEMBER THAT LIES COMPOUND THEMSELVES AND ARE FAR MORE DIFFICULT TO FACE LATER ON THAN THE TRUTH IS RIGHT NOW. SO INSTEAD OF MY TRYING TO ALTER SOME ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED, HELP ME TO WORK ON CHANGING MY ATTITUDES, BEHAVIORS, AND WORDS SO THAT I WON'T FEEL THE NEED TO HIDE BEHIND A LIE. AMEN.

NO MAN HAS ENOUGH MEMORY TO BE A SUCCESSFUL LIAR.-----ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    Over the years and through the lies I've found that telling the truth always makes life more peaceful even if the truth hurts. emoticon

    Well I certainly have to agree with this and the comments so far...two of which I had thought of as well. However I did not see this old saying yet, so here is one more for you: "The truth always comes out in the end." And I have found this to be so true, that whenever an issue is cloudy, I always say that now.

I have to plead GUILTY however to having done this:" I'M TEMPTED TODAY TO AMEND THE TRUTH ABOUT SOMETHING TO PRESERVE MY IMAGE". I can thank God I have an immediate correction in my mind now, when I am tempted (and I AM still tempted) to ever do that again. Only the Lord can take away such pride. The human nature wants 'to be right and to look good', and our only hope of victory is in Him.

    Off the cuff, but Judge Judy always says, "If you tell the truth, you don't have to have a good memory. Speak the truth in love!

  lies have to make sense, the truth is just itself.

    This reminds me of the old saying, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." The truth is always found out, if by no one else, God knows. Better to be honest up front. Amen! emoticon
