Truth for Today
“The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.” – Proverbs 11:3
“Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.” Ephesians 4:25
Thought for Today
The Bible has a lot to say about honesty because our God is a God of truth. Jesus said of Himself, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” Honesty reflects Jesus’ nature. Jesus always displayed honesty and confronted dishonesty. So, the old saying is true – ‘Honesty is the best policy.’
One of the things I value most about living an honest life is how it enables me to enjoy a sense of peace which can’t be attained any other way. Living an honest life brings freedom. Let’s live in such a way that when people think of honesty and integrity, they will think of us – the followers of Jesus.
Prayer for Today
Father, I pray my life would be an example of your truth expressed through honesty. Jesus, help me to grow in honesty – to share the truth, live from the truth of your Word, and speak the truth in love. Holy Spirit, prompt me to exercise honesty in every action, thought, and attitude. Amen.
