Why fuss about “White Lies”? If you will lie about the little things, before long you’ll lie about bigger things. The people in large companies that have come tumbling down because of financial misdeeds didn’t start off by stealing millions of dollars. They started off compromising a hundred dollars here, a thousand dollars there. Then, when the opportunity came, they compromised millions.
Don’t kid yourself. If you will compromise in something small, eventually you will compromise in more serious matters. Compromise is a downhill slide. Theft is theft, whether it’s one dollar or a thousand dollars. Taking home your company’s office supplies is dishonesty. Not giving your company a full day’s work is not integrity. Stretching the truth in order to get a new account is deceit. God won’t bless any of that.
