This situation caused me to start thinking about truth verses a lie. I was thinking about how some people would rather be around folks who tell them a lie or simply don't keep it real with them than someone who will be honest with them in love. I mean they'd rather listen to someone lie to them about how it's okay to lie, cheat, steal, misuse and abuse others, but get upset when someone tells them that stealing makes them a thief, lying makes them a liar, and not reciprocating makes them a user. It's like some of us prefer to listen to lies than hear the truth!
I decided to get some feedback from my peoples, so I sent out about 35 text messages asking different people of different ages, race, and gender the question at hand. "Is it better to hear the truth or listen to a lie?" I wanted to share some of the feedback with you.....
"What's wrong with the truth"-34 year old female
"Always better to hear the truth man, but it's easier to tell and listen to a lie"-35 year old male
"Hear the truth even when it hurts"-34 year old female & 35 year old female
'I think it's best to hear both cause even in a lie there is truth about their character"-31 year old female
"The truth and nothing but the truth"-30 year old female
"Hear the truth and a lie if you are scared of the truth"-18 year old male
"I believe the truth but you must be ready for it"-35 year old female
"Hear the truth, but it doesn't mean i will follow it"-30 year old female
So what do you think?????? Is it better to hear the truth or listen to a lie???
