Jeremiah 9:5 ” Friend deceives friend, and no one speaks the truth. They have taught their tongues to lie; they weary themselves with sinning.”

If I asked you, you’d probably say you know the difference between right & wrong. For even if you were raised by a pack of wolves, your conscious is pricked at the sight of something wrong or a flagrant lie spoken. But what about telling the difference between what’s right & what’s almost right? We tend to spin lies to our own benefit…with the biggest lies being the ones we tell ourselves. We say to ourselves, “It’s not hurting anyone else.” “I’m only going to try it once.” “It’s just a little white lie I’m telling them.” And in doing so, we rationalize, and justify the untruth…searching for a plausible, (but still untrue) reason for our conduct. So in the end, we find ourselves not only deceiving others, but ourselves as well.
