6/25/13 Daily Devotion

Zechariah 8:16-17 These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; [17] do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the Lord.

One of the greatest assets we have is our truthfulness. If we remain truthful, others will never question our words or actions, but this can quickly change. If we continuously release words that hold no truth, people will get to the point where they will never believe anything we say. This is comparable to the boy who cried wolf. At first, he was believed. But after misleading the townspeople enough times, they refused to help him when he really needed them the most. Our words define who we are and what we stand for in this life. What do your words say about you?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me to speak with honesty and integrity, knowing that my words are one of my greatest assets.
