TRUTH MUSINGS

I am often amazed at how you can decide to lie in broad daylight….and in front of a congregation in church. No matter where you come from you cannot just decide to embellish us with your lies on a chilly Sunday morning.

The reason I say this is because there is this lady in church who was asked to tell us her achievements and she went on listing more than ten (as far as I could count) achievements she has accomplished, albeit in Uasin Gishu and in Nairobi simultaneously.

How could it be that you are an undergraduate student and you are a part time lecturer at the same university? Enlisted in the achievements was something like a student leader…….holding other factors constant, a person in the same university confided in me that it would not have by-passed her to notice a student leader and that she was not one of them! The pastor had to stop her from enlisting all achievements because they were just too many. Honesty is still the best policy and it should be known to all and sundry that the truth out lives a lie.

Today it seems there are fewer policy holders than there used to be……’Truth exists; only falsehood has to be invented’- George Braque. Truth will rise above false hood as oil above water. The lady I am talking about was the only one referring to a paper of all the achievements she has attained…..the rest had it in their heads; you don’t have to remember if it is the truth. White lies leave black marks on your reputation. You can’t stretch the truth without making your story look pretty thin, and when you stretch the truth it snaps back at you.

Two half truths don’t make a whole truth. It is dangerous to get used to substitute the truth for something else the go ahead and say you are saved in the blood of Jesus Christ….it wrong! You make me think It’s a bunch of pretender willies that go to church.

An honest person alters his ideas to fit the truth; a dishonest person alters the truth to fit his ideas. Truly there is no power on earth more overpowering than the truth. Speak the truth and it will set you free!
