Innocence requires no change in behavior. (Gladys Deloe, counselor)

Do you remember what it was like to try to cover up a wrongdoing? You probably began with a slight variation of the truth, which led to an exaggeration. And then, you ended by telling a complete lie. How difficult was that? At first it seemed easy, but it most often led to real difficulty. As Deloe writes, when you’re innocent, you won’t have to lie.

Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right. (Proverbs 20:11)
For we are each responsible for our own conduct. (Galatians 6:5)
