Jehovah will forgive & forget our past errors if we're truly repentant & accept his mercy. The ransom can cover the sins of all who have fallen into sin & have repented. (Prov. 24:16) Faith in the ransom can lift the burden of excessive guilt from our shoulders & can give you strength to serve God with your whole heart, mind, & soul.—Matt. 22:37.
Many people tell lies. Do you think that is all right? Did you know that all the sickness, pain, and death on the earth came about because of a lie? No matter what we may do, it will always make matters worse if we lie about it, and we shouldn’t even tell only half of the truth. Always tell the truth.
