"There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community." Proverbs 16-19
Why do people lie?
fear, desperation, insecurity
hurt, anger, revenge, greed
the desire to impress or project the image of a "better" person
misguided help for others
... once a person starts lying about little stuff, it grows like a deadly disease.
DECLARE WAR ON LIES
The old sayings are still so true -- honesty is the best policy.
And, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything.
Lies break the ties of trust... honesty builds trust and respect. I'm in the mood to build, are you?
have an honest-filled day!
