In America today, truth has become a rare commodity. We too often resort to half-truths to protect our preferred outcomes. You call a “half-truth”, a total lie.
I confess it is all too easy for me to rationalize leaving part of the story out if it doesn’t fully support my preferred outcome.
But, can justice survive half-truths? True justice requires an unbiased telling of all the facts. An opinion may allow aggregating facts in support of my position, but justice requires a full revelation of all the known facts.
Fortunately, You know all the facts…You’re justice is never shaded by half-truths.
Help me walk in unblemished integrity, wise discernment and to be slow to judge others. Give me the courage to speak truth in all circumstances.
Scriptures: “Don’t let anyone fool you by using senseless arguments. These arguments may sound wise, but they are only human teachings. They come from the powers of this world and not from Christ.” Colossians 2:8
