Afraid-young-man-smallHere are 12 of the biggest lies I’ve heard people tell:

1. I’m not going to let him (or her) hurt me anymore.

2. I don’t need any help.

3. I’ve got this under control.

4. I’m only going to try it one time.

5. God and I have an understanding.

6. I’m a self-made man (or woman).

7. I can stop any time I want to.

8. That would never happen in my marriage.

9. Be honest with me. I can take it. I won’t be mad.

10. I don’t have time.

11. I’ll call you soon.

12. I’ll be praying about that.

What are some that you have heard that you would add to this list?
