The Importance of Honesty Part 2

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call 
on him in truth. Psalm 145:18

Life Question: Do you call on God to tell you the truth?

The world has change and evolved since I was born!
It used to be that you could say your peace without having
your head handed to you on a platter, nowadays, political 
correctness has become the norm for all of us.....well.....almost
all of us, I don't follow that example.
Political Correctness to me is this: taking a hunk of manure, 
rolling it sugar, putting it in fancy packaging, handing to someone
and calling it chocolate. This problem with this is when the person
takes off the wrapping and bites into it, it leaves a horrible taste in
their mouths. 
The reason for that is because, when you take away the fancy
packaging and the sugar, you have what you started out with 
which is crap(a.k.a manure)! Jesus taught us discernment for a 
reason.....there is greater value in speaking with honest lips so people
will look to us as ones that can be trusted, counted on and respected
than those who look at honest as being offensive. That said, you don't
use honest as a tool for hurting, insulting or belittling them. You speak
truth to each other to build bridges, not burn them.
Jesus spoke the truth to all wherever he went. he brought no sugar 
coating with Him, he spoke it because that's what his Father sent him
into this world to do, and he did it without apology. To learn discernment 
of, and in truth, we need to get into God's Word and read and commit 
to memory what it says in Isaiah 33:15-16 He who walks righteously and 
speaks what is right, who rejects gain from extortion and keeps his hand 
from accepting bribes, who stops his ears against plots of murder and shuts
his eyes against contemplating evil----this is the man who will dwell on the 
heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. His bread will be 
supplied, and water will not fail him. 
We need to write this verse on our hearts so that when we encounter anyone, 
and they tell us something that we are unsure about, we need to  refer 
to this verse and see how it matches up with what that person is telling us. 
We need also to listen carefully when being asked to do something that
if it doesn't leave us with a clear conscience afterwards, is it really being
We also need to listen carefully to anyone who asks us to do something
that will compromise our integrity. Listen to how things are said, as well as
the language being use to say it. 
As it says in Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good.
And what does the lord require of you? To act justly and to love 
mercy and to walk humbly with you God.
Remember as always.....Draw near to God and he will draw near to 
you as he has promised in his word!

It’s really a good blog where we can have a lot of information and its look they read true as well because as per internet you cannot believe on everting they show so it’s hard to find a good site. They explained all the point of that issue that I was seeking and I really appreciate that I will help.
