Honesty is so important!
I think for the most part people are pretty honest. But a lie, is a lie, is a lie. Whether it's a small "white" lie or a big life changing lie.
I want to be a person who doesn't lie. But I do find myself telling these little lies quite often. For instance the other day I forgot to put a check out in the horse trailer for the farrier. I forget almost everytime he comes, and I know he gets annoyed. So, he started calling me later in the afternoon, and I didn't pick up. When I finally did talk to him the next day (yes I put it off until then)I made up some stupid lie as to why the check wasn't there. It was a harmless lie....or was it?
I know I don't like it when these little lies are told to me. I have a relative that babysits every once in awhile. Every single time she comes over she has some story/lie about why she is late. And I always think about how ridiculous it is that she can't just be honest...hey I know she is a late person, I am not offended, and I am used to it. No need for the lies. Even though they are small and harmless, I wish she would just be honest.
Do you tell lies? Big ones? Small ones? Do people lie to you?
I think the saying is true. Honesty is the best policy. Even with the little things.
So if you know me, don't lie to me, even a little bit. And I will make it a point not to lie to you.
