During the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil, American swimmer Ryan Lochte won the gold in the 4 x 200 meter freestyle relay. This was his 12th Olympic medal. Following the games, the 12-time Olympic medalist got in trouble when he lied to police. His lies resulted in an international incident that embarrassed his fellow swimmers and country. He lost endorsements with several major companies. Lochte now regrets having lied to the police and his immature behavior.
Truth stands the test of time; lies are soon exposed. ~Proverbs 12:19
May we learn from Lochte’s mistake and choose to tell the truth and keep our honor.
