Virtue: Truthful

While it is often difficult to find an honest person, hose in authority generally appreciate honesty. For what good are advisors who mislead him? "Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value a man who speaks the truth." Pr 16:13

Don't worry how people react to truth. For those who are of the truth appreciate honesty. Jesus said, "Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." John 18:37b So who do you want to listen to you? If you want those who are of the truth to listen to you, then tell them the truth. Conversely if you find they don't appreciate the truth, then what does that say about them?

Rather than telling people lies,"instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ." Eph 4:15 "Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body." Eph 4:25
