They say honesty is the best policy.
I believe truth is.
Honesty is a mere quality of the beholder. It is based on logic and that which is simply rational . It changes from opinion to opinion and sees things for what they are.
Truth; it defeats honesty. For truth is based on that which is beyond facts. It is integral and true to the genuine way that something should be seen. Truth is trustworthy, factual yet faithful.
To be honest one can be upfront yet downright insolent because honesty is drawn solely on rationality and is often inconsiderate of love. It can sometimes entrap us and make us feel less of ourselves and of others. But the truth.. it sets us free..because truth is founded in not just fact but above all founded in love. Truth sees you for not just who you are but who you can be. With truth there is hope. It is universal.. It is eternal.. It defies every lie that honesty can compel us to believe.
Honesty sees a sinner as a wrongdoer but truth sees the sinner as a soul in need of savior. Honesty is oblivious of love. It is often arrogant and demeaning but the truth is grounded in God's perspective. Truth is wisdom and is often more than what the beholder can see.. Truth is more than honest..it is invaluable.
