White Lies

Okay, now I have a question for you. Is it ever appropriate to lie to you spouse? To tell that little white lie?

I know why you’re asking that. You know, it’s kind of the fudge factor. We kind of want to say, “Well, is it okay to not tell them exactly how I felt about that dinner they just cooked tonight?”

Or how much I spent on this set of golf clubs.

Yeah, that’s a lot more likely—that fudge factor. The truth is, honesty is so disarmingly connective. It’s about the most intimate thing you could offer.

And it’s quite a gift you can give to your spouse as well. In fact, Proverbs says, “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” And that’s a good gift for all of us.
