December 10, 2004“…they’re not the judge – God’s the judge. The only person you have to think twice about lying to is
either yourself or to God.”
……I would add my husband to
that list, but lying to him is as harmful as lying to myself.
I was hoping I could just let the quote stand alone, but unfortunately
my need to talk about things overcomes my desire to make a
I lie, I admit it. I don’t see a problem with it
generally, but neither do I seek it out as the easiest alternative to
truth. The danger in me actually admitting this, lies in my
trustability, likeability…the lack thereof. I would rather be
thought of as trustworthy, but the truth is I am…and I am not.
I don’t think I’m capable of lying to my friends, and theirs is the
trust I seek.
