Calling people out

I have been struggling with calling people out when they lie. I don’t understand the lies people tell.  I know I am not free of sin, I know I have been guilty.  But lately it seems like I keep seeing boundaries being crossed, or putting others in akward positions, and thinking it’s ok, and have not wanted to keep my mouth shut.  But I also know that I sometimes confront in an unkind manner. Lord, please give me your wisdom and discernment, with love and grace, that I would know when to say something and when to bite my tongue.  But to also not fear what men will think, and know that I am doing your will.

Sins of the father

We are all guilty of sin. Dishonesty, confrontational….forgive me father, for I sin as much as the Pinnochios I am around….thank you for hope in forgiveness, and hope for my children.
“Please, Lord, prove that your power is as great as you have claimed. For you said, ‘The Lord is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty. He lays the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations.’ In keeping with your magnificent, unfailing love, please pardon the sins of this people, just as you have forgiven them ever since they left Egypt.”
