Tell the Truth

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 12:22 & 19

"Honesty is the best policy." That's one of my favorite sayings and something I strive to put into practice each day. Why? Because God specifically tells and shows us in His Word not to lie, and because I've learned over the years that when am honest (even if being honest means being disciplined, feeling uncomfortable or disappointing someone) things always turn out better when I'm truthful. Thank you, God, for the strong words of Proverbs 12:19 and the reminder of just how offensive our telling lies is to You. Help us speak truth in all situations so that we can be Your delight.

"Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight."

In what types of circumstances are you most tempted to lie? How would you explain that lying is never the best option to a child? What are some benefits you've experienced by choosing to tell the truth? Tami

When we're honest about our actions, motivations, and thought processes, we often find that people understand and can relate to us.

The best benefit of being truthful is knowing that God loves honesty.
