Good morning.

All relationships require honesty. If we develop a reputation for not telling the truth, our friendships and testimony will be damaged. Not only that, but our self-image will also suffer. This isn’t how God wants us to live. He wants so much more for us.

Paul writing to the church in Ephesus, tells the followers of Christ: "You were taught with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body." (Ephesians 4:22‭-‬25)

We often don’t realize how important something is until it’s not there. Take a light bulb for example. We may not think much of a light bulb until we’re fumbling in the dark. Similarly, to appreciate how much truth matters, consider the impact of its absence. We,

• Become vulnerable to wrong teaching.

• Develop habits that don’t align with God’s will, because we don’t know what it is.

• Can stay trapped in emotional bondage.

• Experience continual disappointment because our peace is gone.

• Can’t grow spiritually.

• Grieve God’s heart.

So, unless we repent and change, we won’t reach the full potential God has planned for us. He made us for a purpose (Jer. 29:11) and wants us to live in truth so we can walk with Him, enjoying all the blessings He has in store for us.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
