Can you deal with everything that comes your way? Some people will blame you for their shortcomings. Or do you blame others for your faults? The blame game is an easy game to play. You can make the rules as you go.
Lies destroy your accountability and make you untrustworthy. Most people do not want to admit when they are wrong. Lying becomes their way out. Lies are not self-supporting. One lie depends on another lie.
Deception is common among those who will make you look bad to make themselves look good.
It's not your fault when your parents get a divorce. You have no control over people, places, and things. When you are wrong, admit it and ask for forgiveness. Count your blessing; you have trials to go through. Count it all joy when you suffer for righteousness. God is fair; you will not have to go to hell for the deeds I do. I will not have to go to hell for your sins. That's fair enough for me. I will not go to jail for a friend or a crime I did not commit. Being a committed friend is one thing; being a fool is not wise. If it is not your fault, don't own up to it.
