As I was watching the world went by on the beach during our camping trip. I have noticed couple incidents within 30 minutes of each other. A boy was saying this to his mom, “I want to pee.” –His mom said something and pointed to the lake. Then the boy reported back after a bit, and his mom gestured his to shush. –Interesting.
Then, I saw another girl said in a louder voice that she wanted to go to bathroom. Her mom, again, pointed the sea. Then the girl shouted, “Um .. I really didn’t need to go to bathroom,” and put her finger on her lips–more interesting, I said to myself.
Those moments have fed this mind of mine and here we are at our stop. I wondered if this is how a lie gets started? For convenience purposes, which seem to be quite innocent, are we teaching our children, our next generation, to lie and okay them to do something improper, not abiding the rule? I am not even sure if we realize the price that we are paying for being convenience.
Here is something to think about, are we willing to trade our conveniences with something that contradict with what we have been trying to teach since day one? “Yeah, it never fails to amaze me how a single lie can undo an entire lifetime of good. (Aiden)” ― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Upon the Midnight Clear
Um ... I wonder --Is that how a lie is started …
Until next stop,
