Have you ever been tempted to tell just a little white lie? Sometimes we just don't want to tell the whole truth for fear of getting into trouble or in an attempt not to hurt someone's feelings. Although telling those little white lies is not a good thing, they probably don't harm anyone either. However, there are times when people prepare elaborate untrue stories in an effort to get attention or to create some excitement. Have you ever heard of someone calling in a bomb threat to a school right in the middle of semester exams? What about those people who pull a fire alarm just to see all the commotion that ensues? Just this past week, in New York, the whole city was on alert and many, many hours of manpower were required to investigate a credible threat to the city's subway system. At this point a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security said the threat had doubtful credibility. That means that someone could have simply been setting this up just to watch the excitement. This issue speaks to a very important character trait which we have discussed on many occasions and that is honesty. When those around you know that you are honest, then you earn their trust because they know that regardless of the circumstances you will tell the truth. Let's choose to be that kind of person.
