Our verse today is out of Psalm 86:11it says “teach me your word Lord give me an undivided heart”
The first time I remember being caught in a lie was when I was about eight years old I was at a cookout with my family on the beach when all the sudden, out of the blue my younger sister started screaming and crying. I had no idea what happened! That was the report I gave my mother anyway.
Little did I know that she had actually watched me drop a fiddler crab into my sisters T-shirt. It mostly just scared my sister but she acted like I was an ax murderer. Needless to say I got into deep water with my mom for lying as you can hear in my words, I was the one who was permanently scared.
Thus is the life of sisterhood both biological and spiritual. No one has to teach us to be competitive, to outdo one another or to try to appear smarter or better help do you want another or you try to appear smarter or superior or better than the next person. It’s our natural bent to compare ourselves with others and see how we measure up. The bad news is neither the measure or the measured are perfect.
In Psalm 139 verse 22 David makes a big huge mistake of comparing his loyalty and commitment to God with someone else. The verse says “I hate them with for your enemies are my enemies” David says to God. God says don’t do that. Our wonderful friend David is missing the truth here.
