See it.

Olympic metal

Live it.

Everyone knows the Olympics are games where international athletes compete to win medals. This year in Rio, a few athletes should be awarded medals for telling lies. At first their stories were received as truthful, but then as more was made known about a supposed robbery, some of the athletes came forward to confess their stories. But the biggest name among them continued to spin his story until his web of deceit put a chokehold around his neck. Today, no one can listen to him without wondering if he is telling another whopper. His life and future is forever tarnished by his decision to be untruthful.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, that Your word provides truth by which all men will be judged.
