The Importance of Honesty Part 1


And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you 

free." John 8:32



Life Question: How Important Is Honesty?




April 30, Honesty Day has passed me by. So while I'm on the subject,

I will be honest and tell those viewing this blog and site, that I've had 

some health setbacks which is why the first of this Honesty series was 

delayed.

In the first part of this series lets address how we start on the path to 

honesty. We start by asking God....why you ask? He is, always has been

and will always be the bringer and bearer of the truth, he knows the value

of discernment that speaks the truth and he has no fear in 

speaking the truth.

Let's start with God being the bearer of truth. Being the bearer of truth is,

and always has been hard for us humans, we sugar coat it, we shade it,

we cover it up.....so as not to hurt or offend people. In Jesus' time, he did not

concern himself with such matters, Jesus told the truth to all those he met 

wherever he went. He did not sugar coat anything. As a matter of fact, he 

delights 

That's not to say there weren't doubters among him of his power, there were

MANY! Even some of his own followers like Thomas who weren't altogether

sure and needed proof, Peter who walked on water toward God, when God

encouraged him to join him on the water. As Peter was walking however, he 

started losing faith in the fact the God indeed, had his back THE WHOLE TIME! 

And 

him in his care. 

So what do these examples tell us about honesty? it tells us that digging into 

God's Word is where we begin our journey in being honest. Being honest with 

God, with others and also ourselves. 

Not many people appreciate my honesty, primarily because I will tell it

like it is, so if you really want to know something, don't ask me!heeheehee

All kidding aside, I'd much rather be upfront than not. because it lets people

know where I stand, it shows them I mean what say and respect them enough

to say it.

That's what a relationship of any kind should be built on. Genuine, straightforward

honesty....not anything less. That's not to say that the truth, doesn't hurt, sometimes

it will, but the pain of truth is far less than that of the lie told in it's place.

God was the first truth bearer. We have been entrusted to carry it on, therefore, 

we must carry it forth to all. We need to hear it, speak it, write it on our hearts and

bring others into it's Light! God is the Light and the Truth! Go spread his Light to 

those who are in darkness! AMEN!

DRAW NEAR TO GOD AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU!


Blessings,
