How Do You Handle Truth?

Have you ever seen A Few Good Men? In the movie Tom Cruise’s character goes, “I want the truth.” Jack Nicholson’s character responds, “You can’t handle the truth!” What ever happened to Mr. Cruise? Blame Top Gun for me thinking that he was an okay actor. I digress. Sorry.

How many of us are that way? Hopefully not all the time, perhaps never, but how many of us are faced with reality, not some airbrushed way of seeing things, but the true colors of how things really are? We might know what the truth is but we just do not want someone else to tell us.

And if and when they do, what is your reaction?

Does truth equal fear or freedom?  Right now I am thinking of Fleetwood Mac’s Tell Me Lies

“In building Christian character, beware of two great enemies: the world and self!” from Grace and Truth Magazine 🙂

The Longer Nose

Who is more trustworthy, someone having the power and making it seem as if everything is okay or, the one wanting the power and making it seem that he/she will make everything okay?

Have a moon morning and a starry night. 🙂

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Bite your tongue

Scenario. Wife asks husband, “Does this make me look fat?” or “Am I fat?”

Husband replies, “No dear.” or “Anything you wear makes you look beautiful.”

He is lying, and perhaps she knows that but does not correct him. Why?

Do we have a diplomatic attitude sometimes when dealing with people, you know when to say the right things and how to say them? Also when to withhold the truth, in other words, when to lie.

Which would you prefer, people giving it to you straight, that is, not lying, or biting their tongues, that is, not saying what they want and perhaps need to say?

for the month of february, PLEASE GIVE A DIME. Or ten cents, or an equivalent. For each day, set this amount aside for the whole month, 28 days, and at the end of the month, donate it to a children’s charity. A small big difference. Pass the word along if you please. :)
