Daily Word   Psalm 51:6 - You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.

The fact is, sometimes you can con other people into believing something that is not true. Some people are actually quite good at this. This is a serious problem. A more serious problem is when we con ourselves into believing something that is not true. We act with wisdom when we dare to face the truth about ourselves and then seek to live faithfully and with integrity.
