Honesty-the best policy!
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
I was lied to recently by two different relatives. The truth was completely misrepresented or exaggerated in ways that made my family members appear to need my help and sympathy.
Why do they tell me lies? I can handle the truth. I know that sometimes people get more attention from a bigger, more dramatic story, but next time, I will not have much faith in their words. Sometimes the truth is hard to handle.
We never grow from the lies. We only grow from knowing, accepting and embracing the truth. Even when the truth is difficult, let’s speak the truth with a loving, caring heart.
But speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the head, even Christ.
