PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH
In 1994, The Maestro, R&B singer Barry White had a hit song, "Practice what you preach" that is just as meaningful today as it was then. Requiring and asking others to do what you don't do yourself is hypocritical. That’s right! I said it! How can you reasonably hold anyone to a standard that you don't honor? It's quite simple. If you are about the truth, you cannot be a liar. If you desire all to be in the open, you cannot have a hidden agenda. If at any time you forget how this works, remember the lyrics, "You say there's a lesson that you want to teach... practice what you preach." How's that for a flashback reminder that your words and behavior should match! If they don't, you are saying one thing and doing another. Webster defines that as hypocrisy!
