“Whoever is careless with the truth
in small matters
cannot be trusted with important matters.”
If it’s the truth that is supposed to set us free, why do some people run in the opposite direction of it?
Why do some people have such a difficult time telling the truth and shaming the devil.
There can be uncertainty, doubt, and loopholes presented all throughout the rumor, gossip, lie, or hearsay that’s being told; and the truth will be avoided if it’s not what is really desired to be heard.
Whenever there are people who are stuck on being right, they’re unable to listen to any form of truth that happens to come their way. It doesn’t matter if it is the truth or not.
A lie is often defended. Gossip spreads like a contagious virus. Opinions can be spoken with much precision and accuracy.
Yet, the truth has to have evidence, proof, and verification before it’s even seen as being factual.
Even Winston Churchill spoke of the inconsistency when he said, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
Here’s what I think, and you may find that you agree with me.
Some people have complications about hearing the truth, and don’t quite understand that the truth cannot be hidden.
Some people fail to understand that whatever is done in the darkness of their actions; eventually has to make it’s way back into the light.
Some people treat being told the truth as if they were a child being told for the first time that there was no Santa or the Easter Bunny.
Some people are angered by the truth. Some people change by hearing the truth. Some people are insulted by the truth.
But here’s the thing I want to convey in this short releasing post – the truth is a gift that not everyone is able to share with you.
So whenever you find someone who’s able to tell you the truth, know that you’re in the presence of someone who loves you enough to be your friend and confidant to share such a gift, as the truth with you.
Over to you,
Do you think the truth is something we only embrace when it’s convenient for us to do so? Does it set us free or keep us enslaved to what we want to believe?
