James 5:16 NASB "Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. A prayer of a righteous person, when it is brought about, can accomplish much.""It was me!" Today's Word is about honesty, prayer and what both of them can accomplish! As the foreman stood at the doorway, he asked a simple question "who did it?". I had two choices, lie or tell the truth. I told the truth and had to face the result of my mistake. I knew that what I had done was going to cost the company but I knew I needed to tell the truth. God's Word says that the Truth will set us free so trying to hide from the Truth will only lead us into further trouble. Coming clean means exactly that, we come away clean from our mistakes, our failings, our sin. Sure I lost a day's pay but that was better than walking around with guilt for causing the error and for lying! As we face the birth of Christ, may we find that the Truth will set us free. The Truth being we need Christ in our lives, and that's no lie! peace, tom
