Always Tell The Truth

Always Tell The Truth

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that…maketh a lie.”
Rev 21:27

When it comes to telling the truth, here are two stories: (1) One morning a mother was out shopping when she bumped into her son at a shopping mall. Angry and alarmed that he’d skipped school, she demanded to know why he wasn’t in class. She listened patiently to his explanation and then replied, “I’m not accusing you of telling a lie, but I never heard of a school giving time off for good behavior.” (2) A dentist with a hypodermic needle in his hand says to a patient sitting in his chair, “You might feel a little sting. On the other hand, it might feel as though you have been kicked in the mouth by a mule.” We smile, but the moral of these two stories is clear. Sometimes the truth hurts—but never as much as being told a lie. When you fail to tell someone the truth because you don’t want to hurt their feelings, you risk hurting them more. Truth is like a mirror; it allows those you love to see themselves as they really are and make the necessary corrections and adjustments. And when you fail to tell the truth about yourself you risk losing your credibility. When that’s gone it may take you a long time to get back, if ever. That’s why the Bible says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that ye may be healed” (Jas 5:16). When you open up and share your struggles, you set others free to do the same. And in the process you are both made whole. So, the word for you today is: Always tell the truth.

May I just say what a relief to uncover a person that really understands what they're discussing on the internet.
You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

A lot more people really need to check this out and
understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you definitely
possess the gift.

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a
very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole
lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

Thank you!

on. Any tips?
