Top ten Lies

Leonard Sweet, in his Soul Cafe newsletter, included this list of "Top 10 Liars' Lies":
  1. We'll stay only five minutes.
  2. This will be a short meeting.
  3. I'll be in and out of Wal-Mart in a jiffy.
  4. The check is in the mail.
  5. I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you.
  6. This hurts me more than it hurts you.
  7. Your money will be cheerfully refunded.
  8. We service what we sell.
  9. Your table will be ready in just a minute.
  10. And the number 1 lie people tell: I'll start exercising (tithing, dieting, forgiving, praying, reading the bible … ) TOMORROW!
Leadership, Vol. 16, no. 4.
