Lying is so common that it has become a norm. We lie for the fun of it. We lie to create an unseen comfort. We lie to make our problems go away. We lie to feel good.
This commandment “Thou shall not lie” in Leviticus 19:11 seem not to exist anymore.
Have we for a second, asked ourselves, how we look to the person we are lying to?
“For every good reason to lie there is a better reason, to tell the truth,” Bo Bennett.
One lie is all it takes for someone to lose their faith in you. Why take that chance? You don’t have it, why say you do? You have not been there, why say you have? You have not seen it, why say you did? The more we lie the more opportunities we skew off our path. We end up living a lie due to the pressures we build on ourselves due to lies we’ve told. We lie because we do not love ourselves enough to take responsibilities. Taking responsibility and telling the truth always has a better outcome.
When Jesus Christ said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” What that really means is that essentially the truth is for each and every one of us to realize. It is the soul-searching mandate he placed on us. Lying clouds our path blocks our chances and for that matter takes away our credibility. A truth we should remember fears no questions. The best you can do is always be upfront, always be real and always tell the truth.
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being light years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind even if you are a minority of one. The truth is still the truth.” Mohandas Gandhi
Truth has no limits, the more forthcoming and open you are your soul begins to evolve and the mind responds in kind. Go out there and let the truth be your light…….
