Be Truthful

By   •   March 2


The Bible teaches that purity of conduct includes truthfulness. The Bible teaches that we should be truthful in our representation of ourselves. With what scorn Christ denounced the hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees! In the Sermon on the Mount He rebuked all hypocritical giving, praying, and fasting. We should also be truthful in speaking of our past achievements in our particular vocation. God does not ask us to understate the facts-that might even be untruthfulness-but neither does He want us to overrate our achievements or our gifts, either in thought or in speech. A lie is anything contrary to the naked truth.

Prayer for the day

It is so easy, Lord, to embellish the truth. Give me Your wisdom to be completely honest in every phase of my life.

    Yes, we must change, become new people, a people willing to accept change, to embrace it, a people willing to accept that we know nothing at all, no matter how many years we have studied, a people willing to accept that no matter how much we have loved our families and ancestors that if YHWH God points us in another direction that we can jump and ask how high never denying or asking why.
