We were determined to share with you
not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well.
I Thessalonians 2:7b-9
Words come to life within a person. Who we are speaks more clearly than what we say. It is easy to speak in pious language but usually our listeners carry away no long term convictions. Our media is so filled with words that bend the facts and political figures who “misspeak” that society has become numbed for lack of truth. Yet, there really is no such thing as alternate truth. It is either true or it isn’t. As people of integrity, we are expected not only to share the truth of the gospel but also to share it in our very selves.
May I speak the truth in love.
Am I afraid to speak what I truly believe? Do my words allow others to understand my beliefs and aspirations? Where do I share my very self?
I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.
Never, for the sake of peace and quiet, deny your own experience or convictions.
Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
In the last analysis, what we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do.
We too often bind ourselves by authorities rather than by the truth.
Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.
P. C. Hodgell
If you put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price.
