Do I Respect The Truth?

Truth has never been fashionable especially when it makes us take a hard look at ourselves. Most of us say we want to hear the truth when it applies to others, but rarely do we want to hear the truth when it touches us or those close to us. It’s funny how people applaud the truth as long as it doesn’t impact them and what they are doing. It’s okay to say young girls shouldn’t be having sex or conceiving children without the benefit of marriage until it affects our daughter or other family members close to us. All of a sudden, what felt true for someone else feels like judgement when it’s applied to your circumstance. We can tell others how to raise their children; maintain a job; fix their broken marriage as long as no one knows we are struggling with the same issues. Being honest with yourself is the first step to acknowledging the truth. If you can’t be honest with yourself you can’t be completely honest with others. The Bible says, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” John 32:8. It depends on how much you really want to be free. Saying is a lot easier than doing. Nothing changes unless you are willing to change. Free yourself, you’ll feel better!!
