The Bible verse you’re looking for is: 1 Samuel 18:1-3:7 (English)A prophet from God has been lying to his people, telling them that God has a special gift, a special privilege, that only he has.

But there’s no such thing as a gift, only a privilege, and that gift only comes with work and effort.

The prophet is lying to them, because he doesn’t know the secret.

He knows it will destroy him.

And yet, he’s also lying to himself. 

The truth is, God has not given them the privilege to lie to themselves.

They know the truth, and they’re lying to themselves, and the truth hurts them, too.

But they’re not the only ones who are lying.

We’ve all been there, and we’re not alone.

The Bible tells us about the Pharisees who didn’t believe the prophets, and how the Lord put the people to shame by killing them.

And, for a lot of us, the Bible tells about the people who didn.

The Pharisee who wasn’t born into sin, who didn?

You guessed it.

He was a slave to sin.

The Lord had promised his people that God would bring them a Savior.

But Jesus was not born into God’s kingdom.

He came to bring a kingdom, but he was not a Savior of God’s people.

Instead, he was a Savior who was born into a sin-filled world, but who died on the cross for all who were not saved.

And he never said to anyone, “You are a slave of sin.”

He was a prophet, but not a prophet to be taken seriously.

He spoke in tongues and prophesied, and his followers understood the words he spoke and accepted them as part of what he said.

He didn’t tell them to believe everything he said, because it was true.

He told them to be open to what they heard, to think critically about what he was saying, to ask questions, and to understand the world in which they lived.

The world is not a place where God can tell us what to believe.

It’s a place that doesn’t really work that way, and when we try to force it that way through the words of scripture, we destroy our lives and our hearts.

So when I look at my life, I see a mess, and I know that if I ever wanted to truly be a good person, I had to get to the bottom of it.

I had no choice.

But I didn’t have to do anything.

I didn, because I was able to do what the Bible says I have to be able to accomplish, which is to be a person of integrity, to be truthful, to listen to reason, and always to obey God’s laws.

And that’s what I’ve done for the last 15 years. 

When I first started reading the Bible, I wasn’t really a believer.

I never really read the Bible for a reason.

I read the book of Revelation because it sounded interesting, and because I wanted to be part of the story.

But the Bible has been a big part of my life for over a decade.

I’ve learned a lot about my own heart, my own mind, and my own life.

The truth is I’m not perfect, and sometimes I’m a little selfish.

I’m always looking for a better reason to follow Jesus, but that’s all I’ve ever been able to find.

I have no need to prove anything to anyone.

And if I do, I’ll get in trouble, because God has already given me the right to tell the truth.

But that’s not the way the world works.

So I’ve been a faithful witness, and a witness to the truth of the word of God.

And the truth is it’s not hard to be an honest person, to do good, to love, to give.

That’s all the more reason I’m so thankful that the Lord has blessed me with such a great testimony.

When I’m in the hospital, I think, If I could just give up all my worldly possessions, my life would be so much better.

I don’t want to have to worry about anything else.

I want to just focus on my health and my family, because if I didn`t have them, I wouldn’t be here.

But even the smallest things help me keep my head up. 

I have a small, but precious gift.

When I’m at the hospital and I see that I’m suffering from the flu, it really makes me feel good to be there.

I see the people around me.

They see that they have a lot to worry the world over, but I’m here to do the right thing.

When they are sick, I want them to know that I care, that I’ve always been there for them, and even when they have little things, I know I’m there to make
