Reckless or wise?

To those who always say the truth, how do you say it?

I hate lies. It really irks me.

Provers chapter 12 verse 17
Proverbs 12:17

I am a firm believer that the truth sets free.

I think it’s always better to know the truth and often to know it now!

But is that right? The fact that the truth must be told, are there instances where we need wisdom on when to tell the truth, to whom to tell it and how to tell it?

Because for someone who disagrees with lies, which can sometimes be hidden in diplomacy, you may find yourself edging towards being harsh in a bid to uphold the truth.

Proverbs chapter 12 verse 18
Proverbs 12:18

Here’s what I am trying to say: hold on to truths. It’s absolute wisdoms to be on the side of the truth as against lies. I also advise that as you hold on to the truth that you do so wisely and that you disseminate it wisely. Ultimately what you want the truth to do is bring clarity, healing , solution, warmth, love and relief.

Essentially, be wise with your words.

This post is not an excuse for anyone to tilt towards lies. Far from it. It’s a call to seek wisdom from God on how to speak and when to speak and to whom to speak because it could ultimately impact the effect of the words that come out of our mouth.

Proverbs chapter 12 verse 19

Proverbs 12:19

I sometimes feel like my mama birth me forth with truth serum.

But I believe it’s good because it shows that I am the daughter of my father (God).

Are there instances when you have spoken the truth harshly as against wisely and it back fired? Would you like to share?

Plus if you are a repentant liar and have found that the light is in the truth tunnel, would you please share your redeeming experience in the comment section?

It may help someone who reads this post find their path to true freedom and love.

So who are you? A reckless or wise person?

Happy Monday, here is hoping you have a truthfully rewarding work or school week.
