I always intend to be truthful, it’s just in the hustle of life I can get sloppy or lazy about it. Having a week to be focused and intentional about honesty has been very helpful to me. Hopefully to y’all as well.
When I am actively honest and truthful, I love the safety and stability of it. I don’t have to worry about remembering what I said to folks, I just remember the truth and I’m good to go. Yes, sometimes I take flack for it, but reality is I’m going to take flack for something (the nature of life in this world), so it might as well be for the truth. 🙂
Besides, God likes honesty and He’s the one I’m most concerned about.
Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight. Proverbs 12:22 ESV
