Do not bare false witness.
Truth matters. Then why do we lie. Or at least me, I make a big point about telling the truth, yesterday I got stopped by a highway patrol man doing his job. I am missing the front license plate on my car. On may 1 2008 I had a fender bender and lost it. Never got it replaced. All I had to do was tell the truth. He asked me if I had ever had warning and I told him no. It was not true; I had received two on that. I knew I was lying, and I knew I would get caught. But I lied. I don’t understand this. I hate lies. So why did I do it. It cost me a $100 dollar ticket. Truth matters. I drove away from there feeling dirty, like I had just shot my own mother; I don’t understand why I did it. Truth matters. I thanked him for the ticket. As a believer we have a responsibility to always tell the truth. I really feel I am being held to a high standard by our Father in everything I do. I am not perfect, but this for me is a big deal. Truth matters. I ask every one of you folks who are faithful readers to forgive me for this choice I made to lie. My heart is heavy, I feel like I let each and every one of you down.
Please forgive me
