More thinking early in the morning...

When we lie, whether to cover our own arses, or advance our own interests, we demonstrate a lack of faith.  A lack of faith in God and His perfect will and a lack of faith in His truth.  A lack of faith that 'All things work together unto good.'  Granted, I am not saying that lying is always a sin (more on this in a future post). What I am saying is that when we lie simply for our own benefit to keep ourselves from looking bad or to make ourselves look good, we not only commit a sin by lying, but we also demonstrate the weakness of our personal faith.
