â€œDeliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, [and] from a deceitful tongue.â€ – Psalms 120:2
An excited husband called to tell his wife that he had been asked to accompany the boss on a fishing trip to Canada. The husband had to leave that evening and asked his wife if she would mind packing a few things for him. He added, â€œBe sure to include my new silk pajamas.â€
She thought that sounded fishy but said nothing. When the man returned from his trip. His wife asked how it went.
â€œGreat,â€ he said.
â€œDid you catch anything?â€ she asked.
â€œYes, pike, walleye. What fun!â€ Then he asked, â€œBut why didnâ€™t you pack my blue silk pajamas?â€
â€œI did,â€ she said, â€œThey were in your tackle box.â€
Lying is, most of all, about stupidity. We will be found out. You may be getting away with it for now; but, in the end, the truth comes out. It may not be until you die, but God has on file everything weâ€™ve ever said. So youâ€™d be wise to seek His forgiveness and start telling the truth. Always! Otherwise, youâ€™ll eventually look like a stupid fool.
