Mothers Who Lie

By: Susan Bea Good

I have experience, as a mother, standing before a judge and being disregarded…in fact derided, for testimony regarding my son’s wrongdoing as a 17 year old. I learned that judges do not believe a mother’s testimony. While we may be identified sympathetically…our veracity is pathetic…because mothers lie!

As I follow the closing of the Zimmerman trial today, I am reminded of this steroetype…and I have a warning for mothers who lie…you are hurting your children!

I believe that Trayvon Martin’s mother has not been honest. She was aware of her son’s bad behavior…finally causing him to be expelled from his liberal school district in Miami.

Moms know when their sons are on the “wrong path.” We may want to deny the seriousness of their behaviors when they are children. But when boys are almost men, and still drugging, stealing, and thugging...we must stop lying!

If Trayvon’s mom had been honest a few years ago, maybe her son would still be with her today.

“A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.” (Proverbs 10:1/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
