Being truthful with integrity shows the golden rule!

Just a short note today ... thinking more about showing others the golden rule in our lives.  Treating others as we would like to be treated. 

In Acts 5 we read the account of Ananias & Sapphira.  This couple was being generous, but not truthful and they paid for it with their lives.

Col. 3:9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds.

Being truthful is a direct reflection of your inner character, your integrity.  I like to say that integrity is who you are when no one is watching.  My words and my deeds match up.  My actions are a direct reflection of my faith.  When we are faithful and honest, it shows. 

We are going to treat others fairly and honestly, we will give our word and keep it. 

This includes when talking to our husbands!  How often do we gloss over the truth in regards to our bank accounts, how much that new dress cost, or what we spent on the children while out shopping? 

Titus 2:7 In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works in doctrine showing integrity. 

Take a minute and think about if you're being truthful, and what it says about not only your integrity, but also about you.
