Saturday, November 6th, 2010. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.
A small boy was on the witness stand in an important lawsuit. The prosecuting attorney cross-examined him, then delivered, he thought, a crushing blow to the testimony. “Your father has been telling you how to testify, has he not?” “Yes,” the lad replied and did not hesitate with the answer. “Now,” said the lawyer triumphantly, “just tell us how your father told you to testify.” “Well,” the boy said modestly, “Father told me the lawyers would try to tangle me in my testimony, but if I would just be careful to tell the truth, I could repeat the same thing every time.”
The wise writer of Proverbs 14:5 says this,
“A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.”It is a shame that we live in a time when people will climb a tree to tell a lie rather than stand on the ground and tell the truth when the truth makes more sense.
"God, let our conversations be filled with Your truth.
Our God is an awesome God.
