How big of a deal is lying?
Yesterday, the blog covered things to avoid at work. One of the first things Erica and I have taught our kids is not to lie. Moral decisions are around us all day, everyday.
The biggest news last night in the sporting arena was that Barry Bonds was indicted by a Grand Jury. Barry Bonds is a professional baseball player that has hit more homeruns than anyone in history. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison. The punishment would not be for taking performance enhancing drugs (steroids), but for LYING to a grand jury about taking steroids.
Up to 30 years in prison for saying 3 or 4 sentences.
How powerful are your words?
