“Why The Truth Matters More Than You Think” is a subtitle to a book written by Andy Andrews. The book is titled “How Do You Kill 11 Million People?”
I would strongly recommend reading the book. It’s a short book and an easy read.
Truth matters to us in many things. We want our children to tell the truth. We want truth from our spouse. Learning that our doctor, mechanic, minister, contractor and a host of other individuals are not truthful with us is an automatic deal changer in our dealing with them.
From many we insist on the truth.
Do we insist on it with ourselves? Do we determine to be truthful with ourselves and with others?
What a difference it would make in our world if we expected and insisted on truth from ourselves and from others.
LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain? The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; (Ps. 15:1-2 NIV)
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. (Ps. 145:18 NIV)
Truth matters more than you think.
