The Lying Fisherman
By Rick Boxx
August 30, 2010
A Captain and his team in a North Carolina fishing contest caught an 883 pound blue marlin, far surpassing the second place marlin of 528 pounds. Imagine the excitement of winning first place, and the $900,000 prize money, only to lose it all because one of your team members didn't have a $15 fishing license.
According to gofishn.com, the contest requires a fishing license for each person on the boat. After the fish was caught the team member hurriedly purchased a fishing license, but his lie was discovered through a mandatory lie detector test.
Proverbs 19:5 teaches, "A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will not go free."
Truth is the best medicine. Do you have any uncovered lies that need addressed?
