God Wants Us to Become Honest People – Matthew 5:37
verse: But let your communication be, Yes, yes; No, no: for whatever is more than these comes of evil. – Matthew 5:37
We can see from the verse that God taught us that we should speak honest words, make our communication be Yes yes, No no, not tell lies, not argue for our personal benefits, not suspect others, speak and act and perform the duty practically, without our intentions and adulteration, being honest people. As God’s words said, “Honesty means to give your heart to God; to never play Him false in anything; to be open with Him in all things, never cover the truth; to never do that which deceives those above and deludes those below; and to never do that which is done merely to ingratiate yourself with God. In short, to be honest is to refrain from impurity in your actions and words, and to deceive neither God nor man.““… you ought to know that God likes an honest man. God has the substance of faithfulness, and so His word can always be trusted. Furthermore, His actions are faultless and unquestionable. This is why God likes those who are absolutely honest with Him“.
Hope we can practice becoming honest people together and pursue to satisfy God’s heart.
