We have all had reputations for exaggeration and lying during our lives of addiction and compulsion. Living a life of integrity requires avoiding lies, half-truths and omissions of the truth in order to become known as trustworthy.
Lies lead to relapse..
Ask God today to help you speak the truth, even when it hurts.
James 5:12 My friends, above all else, don’t take an oath. You must not swear by heaven or by earth or by anything else. “Yes” or “No” is all you need to say. If you say anything more, you will be condemned.
