Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Ephesians 4:25 KJV
Father I never want to compromise our relationship. You are not expendable. You are not replaceable. In my life there are no other options, it is only You. If it is not clear that I am Your servant, then mold me to show it.
Please forgive me when I don’t put You first. Please forgive me when I don’t tell the truth, tell only part of the truth, or manipulate the truth even when it’s to avoid hurting someone’s feelings. Father touch my heart and mind so that I can see the graceful way to speak the whole truth without irreparable harm to myself and others. I trust You Father. In Your name I pray. Amen.
There are no reasons, only excuses to why we break God’s commandment to tell no lies. If we pray for the wisdom to be graceful and dignified, our honesty will not cut but rather comfort, mend, and heal.
