“…A man can be dumb, stupid……But if he is reputed to be a liar…then, he’s dead in the water.

20131127_071757Do you want to be ID’ed as a liar, or known as a truth teller?  These days, everybody is running a background check on somebody…for something.  Once, I even had to run one on myself, after being TURNED DOWN on a gun purchase;…boy was I shocked.  I had a 21 page RAP-SHEET, and not a single word had anything to do with me. I was miss-identified ….but was able to get it straightened out without to much fanfare.  The point is: if you are a KNOWN LIAR…then it will follow you around your entire life. What do you want to be known for?  Over the years, people have kinda categorized me as being hard working, shrewd, difficult, too serious, hard to deal with….and most importantly…a man of his word, yet one who is polite and respectful…and some, too many…thought of me as a SOB (whatever that is)  I consider all of these to be COMPLIMENTS.  No one thinks of me as being a person of UN-TRUTH.  Proverbs 12:22 – Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. A man can be dumb, stupid, an SOB, and a slob; and still be an achiever.  But if he is reputed to be a liar…then, he’s dead in the water. …Blessings…cjlb…11/27/13
