Saturday, January 31st, 2015. 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
“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 even when the truth makes more sense.
God, let our conversations be filled with Your truth.
In GOD we Trust!
