"Lord, you are searching for honesty" (Jeremiah 5:3a)
Why do we have so much trouble telling the truth? People lie all the
time. People lie to get out of trouble. People lie to make themselves
look better. Sometimes people lie to avoid conflict. Other times people
lie to incite conflict. Human beings lie a lot. An exaggeration is a
lie just like minimizing is a lie. A little white lie is still a lie. We even lie to ourselves.
God, however, is truth, and He is searching for truthful people. Today, let's focus on telling the truth, being the truth, and living the truth.
"Father in Heaven, give us truthful hearts and truthful lips. May the
Holy Spirit guide us and convict us that we might live today as the
honest ones your are seeking. Through Jesus, Amen!"
