Psalm 119: 29
Keep me from lying to myself;
give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.
Oh, the old 'lying to myself'.
We all know lying is a sin, and we try not to do it to other people.... but what about ourselves?
We lie to ourselves about a lot of things: our appearance (both good and bad), our attitudes, how we treat people, etc.
And we can even lie to ourselves about our relationship with God.
We can think we are A-OK. "I haven't killed anyone. I'm a pretty good person. God should be happy with that."
But not killing isn't the only commandment we are supposed to keep.
Only you know your true relationship with God (as the preacher talked about yesterday). Don't lie to yourself about it. Really dig deep and look at your heart to see how much God truly lives there. If he's not there as much as you'd like/need, pray about it. You can never be too close to God :)
God Bless You :)
