A Week of Accountability - Proverbs 28:13

"When you give in to temptation, it’s really a lie you’re telling yourself that makes it “okay.” When you get caught with your weakness down, you have a choice … multiply your lie’s audience to cover it up, or just come clean – to them and yourself. One choice will free you, the other will leave you chained - in bondage to your own deception." - Lauren Yost #R15LC

“Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.- Proverbs 28:13
