White Lies


Matthew 5:27  "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery. But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.


Hockey Chat:  I’ve seen hockey players try to argue there way out of penalties saying that it was just a little hook or they just slashed at the puck not the opponent.  They try to minimize the offense.  Fact is, when they are called for penalty, it’s a penalty.  If they say they just barely hit the guy with their stick, they still are called for slashing.  If plead that they just nudged the guy head first into the boards, they still get called for boarding just as if they slammed him.  When the ref sees a penalty, regardless of the degree, he calls it.



Life Lesson:  This is a tough verse for a lot of guys in this world.  They feel they can look but don’t touch.  Tell a little white lie.  Borrow a little something without asking.  They think of a bunch of ways to justify what they want verses what God commands.  Jesus called us all out, basically saying “a sin is a sin”.
