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.

    This is so important…sometimes a real challenge, because things get “embedded” and you have to peel off layers to get to the truth.

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.””May God bless us everyone. Amen””The Way of the Cross Leads Home. Amen” thankyou.

    To God be the glory and mightyª This is why we must read the Holy Word everyday and pray for all our leaders at all times. And tell them they are mistaken when they are taking us off the Way.
