Some people think lying is necessary . . . even a good thing. Do you agree? When was the last time you lied? Do you always notice when you are lying? What lie(s) have you told in the past week? Maybe you said something like, 'I love your new haircut' when you didn’t; or, 'It’s okay, it doesn’t matter that you spilled grape juice all down my new white shirt' when, actually, it was a gift from your girlfriend and she’s going to kill you. We all lie for different reasons and with different justifications; however few of us stop to think what a lie actually is.
