Your sibling did something horribly bad! They cheated on a test, no. They shaved the cat, no. They took dad’s new car for a joy ride, yeah that might work.
Not only did your sibling take the car out, but they damaged a good portion of the driver’s side. Dad is going to be extremely upset.
Your sibling thinks it was fun, funny, & that its no big deal because Dad will just get it fixed. At least that’s how you see it. You just know your sibling will take no responsibility when it comes to the consequence.
You know that you’ve gotten in trouble a lot with day. He helped you learn your lesson & be remorseful of your mistakes. But your sibling doesn’t seem that remorseful.
Ironically, you recall when you did the same thing. You took Dad’s car & got into an accident.
What do you do?
A) Do you pretend that nothing ever happened?
Dad won’t notice, or if he does you’re not responsible so you don’t need to say anything or do anything about it.
B) Do you help your sibling escape the blame & consequence by creating a believable story?
Lie to Dad. Tell him it wasn’t your siblings fault. Tell him someone must have stole it.
C) Do you speak up to Dad & tell him the whole truth about what happened?
Your sibling might despise you, but they might just need to learn a lesson or morality & values. Wouldn’t you want to be disciplined now before you veer too far off the path? Why not do your sibling the same favor.
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
(Matthew 7:12-14 ESV)
