proverbs 12.

so back in the day when i was in elementary school or something, i lied to my mom.

and back then lying was a big deal… well it’s still is, but i guess i make more of an effort to cover up the lie than actually confessing to the lie, so it doesn’t seem like a big deal.

anyway, i lied to my mom about something… i don’t really remember what it was, but she made a big deal out of it (maybe because i was pretty little back then) and she made me copy this verse : “The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful.” Proverbs 12:22 

yes, she made me copy this verse 100 times, BY HAND.

so i pretty much know this verse by heart now. but did it really teach me a lesson about lying? i don’t think so. i’m pretty sure i lied again the week after, but i was just a bit more careful.

it was funny how i bumped into this verse again today, it was just a funny story i’d like to share with you guys.
