WE DON'T WANT THE TRUTH UNLESS IT IS CONVENIENT FOR US

Have you ever asked for someones opinion concerning a situation that you were dealing with? Did you find yourself upset with the individual's response. Do you hate the truth when it is not convenient for you? Many times we look for others to reassure us that what we want is right for us. When we don't get that reassurance we find ourselves upset. It is also important to realize that just because someone reassures you of something that you want, it doesn't mean that it is right for you. The truth can be hard to accept and it can be hurtful at times. We have to accept the truth despite the outcome. When we listen to the truth, we can find ways to better ourselves. Therefore, we should work on finding the truth and accepting the truth in inconvenient situations.  Often times people try to portray others because they are not happy with their true self. So, they take on a fake personality. Individuals go through very extreme measures to hid the truth. However, "the truth always comes to the light," so it is better to remain true from the very beginning. If you start off wrong, it is very likely that you will end up wrong. To get the best out of life, we must accept the truth in all types of situations.

  1. As a parent I like all parents are face with the responsibility on telling our children the truth, many times parents are not liked very much when they follow through with this task, but nevertheless most children usually will except the truth from there parents at some time or another, ofcourse as they mature. Also as being a pastor I am face with this task all the time of tell people the truth that they may not want here. I have learned that people who want the real truth will thank you for giving it to them. I had an experience over the week end when my realtor who helped me to buy two house asked me to teach her how to cut her hair, and as you know Naomi I believe what the bible says that a womans who has long hair it is a glory to her (1Corinthians 11:15),Which means that I could not asist her in doing something contrary to what I believe in, so even though we may have issues with receiving the truth from others, it can be equally challenging to tell the truth to others also.
