Your biggest vices are often a result of the fact that you made a little decision that you convinced yourself was no big deal. (Keith Minier, conference speaker)
When we were younger, we often thought that a little “white lie” or a “fib” was okay, especially if we thought the whole truth might be hurtful to us or someone else. Of course, experience has likely taught us that one lie almost always needs another one to keep the truth from coming out. Such is the history of mankind. We need to remember that the truth is always the best way.
Truthful words stand the test of time but lies are soon exposed (Proverbs 12:19).
