â€â€Psalmsâ€¬ â€15:1-3â€¬ â€- Be Filled With Truth
â€œLord, who can dwell in Your tent? Who can live on Your holy mountain? The one who lives honestly, practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart â€” who does not slander with his tongue, who does not harm his friend or discredit his neighbor,â€
â€â€Psalmsâ€¬ â€15:1-3â€¬ â€
The truth seems elusive to us at times, in ourÂ culture of lies. Whether it be a coworker’s dishonesty as they work their way to the top, a friend caught in the destruction of lies and gossip, or the bombardment of sly non-truths from media and advertising. It is easy to be drawn in. God’s word, however, beckons us to be filled with truth. We have a higher calling to honesty. When face to face with our dishonest and slandering culture, we can and should stand for truth and grace.
