Tell the Truth

Could you go one day without lying? How about one month? In the book "To Be Perfectly Honest", author and humorist Phil Calloway relates his experience trying to go one year without lying. Prevarication, half-truths, misdirection, deception, little white lies, exaggerations--all are forms of lying as Calloway found out when he vowed to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth for 365 long, long days. On his journey, he realized that in order to tell the truth, he needed to get closer to the One Who is Truth, Jesus Christ. Presented in a form similar to diary entries and sprinkled with humor, Calloway's day-to-day commentary shows a man who is not perfect and who fails many times in his efforts to achieve perfection in truth-telling. But, he also shows that God's grace is great enough to forgive each of us and to help us to grow more like Him.
