They’s-a-Xaggeratin! Now, why would anyone want to exaggerate… on anything…obviously, to suit their own agenda? I think we all exaggerate, to a degree, but don’t want to admit it. Think about it, and you’ll realize that our Government leaders exaggerate, when informing the public about employment statistics, IRS scandal, Bengasi issue, economic factors, and the NSA issue, etc. Then there are the Major Corporations who exaggerate their financial status, ROI, profits/losses, and “what pill will make you lose weight,” and all for self-serving reasons. And, we common folks are guilty of exaggerating too; our weight, hair color, physical attributes, age, education, career and financial status, and an array of other self-serving exploits. All of this goes beyond APPEARANCE; as actually, it’s a case of basic integrity. We are a dishonest people, and we got that way because God gave us free will. And, because we choose options that serve our best interest, (as we measure the circumstances). The problem, though, is we compromise our relationship with God. We all know right from wrong; and choosing the high road trumps the alternative. For me, I plead the 5th. Psalm 120:2 – Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue. …Blessings…cjlb…8/19/13.
