Proverbs 6:16-19 (NLT) - There are six things the LORD hates—no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.

Learning #1: Honesty is a daily personal choice .

Proverbs 21:2 (MSG) - We justify our actions by appearances; GOD examines our motives.

John 8:44 (NLT) - For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning.

Hebrews 5:7-10 (MSG) - While he lived on earth, anticipating death, Jesus cried out in pain and wept in sorrow as he offered up priestly prayers to God. Because he honored God, God answered him. Though he was God’s Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do. Then, having arrived at the full stature of his maturity and having been announced by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who believingly obey him.

Lamentations 3:19-24 (MSG) - I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness, the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed. I remember it all—oh, how well I remember—the feeling of hitting the bottom. But there’s one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope. GOD’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with GOD. He’s all I’ve got left.

Philippians 1:6 (NASB) - For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work among you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus.
