Earn Trust by Telling the Truth!
Truth is a key foundation of a civilization. It is the basis of all contracts and covenants. If there is no truth, there can be no trust. The importance that God places on truth is reflected not only in His commandment, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor,” but also in His future judgment of those who do not tell the truth. Scripture states, “. . . All liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone . . .” (Revelation 21:8).
Speaking the truth to others begins by speaking the truth to the Lord and to ourselves in our own hearts. (See Psalm 15:2.)
