The blessings and benefits of “truthing it” as a consistent lifestyle!

TruthfulnessThere are incredible blessings and benefits to truthfulness as a consistent lifestyle – always “speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15)! This is how we can make a lasting impact on others – our community, our colleagues, our close friends, our children and certainly, our cherished spouse! … AND as an added benefit, also enjoy the “favor of the Lord!”

Verses I read today during my time of “coffee with the Lord” powerfully made this point…

“Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment. Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy. No ill befalls the righteous, but the wicked are filled with trouble. Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight!” (Proverbs 12:19–22 ESV)

My prayer today after I read these verses? “Oh Lord, I want to live my life ‘truthing it’ … consistently! Please ‘nudge me’ when I am tempted to do otherwise! May truthfulness become my life-habit!”
