I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him and he answered my prayer. Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people. (Psalm 120:1)
Wow! I never read that before---yet I know I have. It's just that it really stands out to me right now because I am going through a time when I have "had it" with deceit. I hate it! I want to confront it and show it for what it is...and yet I know that will alienate people from me. That wouldn't be all that bad, but it's the people I see everyday in my work environment. I can't avoid them. I must figure out how to handle it. I want to conquer the sin while loving the sinner. There must be an answer...Father?
