Lying to get a Bible

I'm blogging this for my dad's sake. When he was young, he and his brother went to church. The people at the church asked whose birthday it was. My dad said it was his. His brother said it was not. My dad asked,"When is my birthday?" His brother said," I do not know; but it is not today."
The people at the church gave my dad the benefit of the doubt though it was not his birthday. He got a Bible. That taught him. =)

When I told that story several years ago I said, 'Now I do not believe in lying. It is wrong and there is no excuse. I will only point out my extreme young age, you see the date 1956, I was only 4 years old.' I was born in '47. - My dad said this to me in email.
