Oh, it seemed like nobody would know. Oh, it seemed so beneficial in the end! Doesn’t everyone drop a little white lie every now and then?
Yet, those greedy lies – even though we call them “little” and everyone else seems to be saying them – they will always backfire. Today, in the life of David, we see that very thing taking place.

And here is a prayer for today:
Gracious God, it isn’t hard to find someone I could take advantage of today, if I really wanted to. And it isn’t hard to let fear drive, so that I can protect my turf and get more for myself. But you have put many people around me so that I can serve and love them, not take advantage of them. Delete from my thoughts any desire to say greedy lies. Put to death in my heart any cold-heartedness that exists. Again and again in Scripture, you pay particular attention to many people – especially those who are vulnerable – and how they are treated. Give me that same compassion that you have, Lord. It’s in your name I pray, Amen.
