“A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.” – Baltasar Gracian
One of my favorite quotes is, “Live in such a way that the pastor doesn’t have to lie at your funeral.” You can’t fight a lie, but you can out-live it. Instead of fighting back when lies come against us, we need to live in the truth. It may take a while for the truth to come out. Friends and family may leave us but if we are living a life of integrity, people will start to question what is the truth.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” – Phillipians 4:8
