Questions to ponder.
In the book, The Good and Beautiful Life, the author suggests that the false narrative we live by when we lie is: I need to lie to get by.
He also gives two main reasons why we lie:
1. fear of what will happen if we tell the truth
2. desire for personal gain if we lie
What do you think of these two reasons? Can you think of others? Which have you personally found to be at work in your life and temptations not to be truthful?
