A reflection on honesty

Reflections for The day

Proverbs 12:22

The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

2 Corinthians 8:21

For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.

Romans 12:3

Humble Service in the Body of Christ

 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

“I never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything but it came at some time; no matter at how distant a day, somehow, in some shape, probably the least I would have devised, it came.” Adoniram Judson

A reflection on honesty

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate. Thou hath sent into thou world thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and in order to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness.

Heavenly Father, thou hath created thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of honesty. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that is honest, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived a life that is described as one that was obedient to thou. We acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is honest, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to live a life that is obedient to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there is a difficulty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a family, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a friend, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that a difficulty is one that, at times, relates to a work colleague. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest in a word that is passed, and if a self is less than honest in a comment that is made, and if a self is less than honest in a deed, a self will feel subjected to a pain. We are able to see in a way that is clear that if a self is less than honest there will be a breakdown in a relationship, and if a self is less than honest there will be a separation from thou, always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is one that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is said,  and we ask thou to guide a self to reflect thou truth that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, a truth in all that is done always. We acknowledge that in order to be truthful in all that is said, and in order to be truthful in all that is done, that there is a need to focus on thou, always.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide a self to remain silent at a time that is necessary, and we ask thou to guide a self to choose a word carefully at all times.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the nature of honesty, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that all of Mankind do experience a situation where a self is less than honest, and that, at times, there is what is described as a half-truth spoken, and that, at times, there is what is described as an omission of a truth spoken.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that a self will reflect upon a need to be honest always, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that is necessary, in order to show a repentance.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is Our Saviour and who is Our Redeemer, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    There are many people who live a life of some dishonesty in order to survive in the world today. Devious means are utilised to gain money indiscriminately in order to run their lives. However, those that forge their lives within God’s pathway, whilst, perhaps not having much in the way of possessions, know that they are pursuing a spiritiual and wise direction towards the Heavenly Kingdom.
