Truth is like surgery. It hurts but it cures. Lie is like a pain killer. It gives instant relief but has side effects forever. The side effects is the erosion of character and reputation as well in many cases. Both things one should not lose.
Some people have a casual relationship with the truth. This is not godly and it is not a good thing. Truth should be embraced and defended at all times. There are things you can be casual with like your gadgets, clothes, shoes, etc. But truth is always serious. Casualness in certain things can lead to casualty in many things.
For anyone who is in trouble, the first thing you need to do is TO STOP doing what is wrong. Get wise counsel from people who are trustworthy. It is not a hopeless situation. Do not do only that which you desire. Be willing to be corrected and change course. There is a difference between what you desire with what is good. Make sure you do what is good and not only what you desire.
All we need is a little bit of everything and a whole lot of ISA.
