Old sayings are my favorite. It leads up to a story usually. It reminds you of the person who first told it to you. But, this one right here is about lying. Grandma Rose would wipe the tears from my eye after my heart would be broken from a lie someone told me, a promise that was made and broken. Countless people would lie; nothing hurt like that of my father.
Nevertheless, depending on the situation, she would say one of three things; "don't you worry about it," everything will be alright," or "it will come out in the wash." It will come out in the wash, of course, made me ask a thousand questions. To make a long story short, it means that you will find out the truth, or everything will make sense in the end. So, let's share this wisdom today. Do not worry about what was said or done; it will come out in the wash. Yesterday we talked about our ancestors praying for us, correct? Well, I am sure they prayed that no one in their bloodline has to endure deception; or it will at least come out in the wash.
Today, we have been given factual scriptures and wisdom saying, what a beautiful combination. Don't lie, and it will all come out in the wash.
Here are two scriptures we should remember:
Proverb 12:22 NIV
The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
25 Therefore, each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26 "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
"You gain wisdom from experiences. I have a whole lot of experiences, good and bad. Thank God for them all and those that came out in the wash."- Alston Shropshire
