Decide to Celebrate Tell the Truth Day July 7th and Everyday

Updated on January 19, 2013

"...And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

by... Jesus Christ (John 8:32)

"Most people, including ourselves, live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know. When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able to handle it better. In fact, you want more! It's true that many people around you now may think you are weird or even a danger to society, but you don't care. Once you've tasted the truth, you won't ever want to go back to being ignorant!"

Socrates (469 - 399 BC)
Quouted by Plato Book 7 of The Republic The Allegory of the Cave

Can You Imagine a World with NO LIES?

July 7th 2010 is National Tell the Truth Day. Are you up for the challenge? No reason to lie. No occasion to hide the truth. Does that sound interesting to you? I’m up for the challenge. I hope you are.

BUT WAIT: A few things to consider; your truth poured out like so much water can cause mud or the nourishment needed for growth. Also, your truth may be just that, ‘your truth’ made up of gut feelings and opinions, not necessarily real facts or even faith.

For this reason it is important to set some ground rules:

Rule 1: IN LOVE – What is said can and should be done with the person’s best interest at heart. Perfect Love Cast out fear, Covers a multitude of sins, and is out of our best intentions not selfish motives.

Rule 2: REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE –Believe it or not, we reap what we sow. Let the truth you share be in a manner that you would also appreciate.

Rule 3: CONSIDER GRACE - There are times the truth is better left for a later date, or better yet, decide if the truth is something you know, they know, and all that is needed is just a simple letting go... .Graciously consider letting the person off the hook for now or forever. You’ll appreciate this same courtesy one day.
