“There is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” - Matthew 10:26
We often say, “Truth will come out any way.” In reality, however, some people get away with a murder and there are unsolved mysteries. Nonetheless, for the most part, truth will surface as the oil rises above water. Therefore, it would be better to believe that honesty is the best policy. One good thing about being honest is that you don’t have to remember everything. Just tell the truth. Truth outlasts lies.
Dear Lord, there are so many lies running around in our world. Some people lie to gain power. Some people lie to gain money. Some people lie to cover up truths that might embarrass them. Help us to be honest, truthful, and trustworthy! Amen.
