Sermon Illustrations

“Accustom your children constantly to this [the telling of the truth]; if a thing happened at one window, and they, when relating it, say that it happened at another, do not let it pass, but instantly check them; you do not know where deviation from truth will end.… It is more from carelessness about truth than from intentional lying, that there is so much falsehood in the world”. (William Barclay, Ephesians (Philadelphia: Westminister, 1976), p. 183.)
