Wisdom is a Truth Teller.

Sunday, 8th August 2010.

“…Listen to me! For I have excellent things to tell you. Everything I say is right, for I speak the truth and hate every kind of deception. My advice is wholesome and good. There is nothing crooked or twisted in it…” Proverbs 8:6-8 (NLT)

In chapter 8 of Proverbs, wisdom is personified- meaning that wisdom is described as being a person. Throughout this chapter, Wisdom calls out to you and invites you to be her friend…. and in today’s verses, you clearly see a side of Wisdom’s personality that we should all have- Wisdom is a “Truth Teller.”

You see, a Girl of Wisdom chooses to speak the truth- when it’s easy AND when it’s hard. She doesn’t twist the truth for her own advantage or deceive people through a web of lies. Being a Truth Teller creates trust. When you’re known as a Girl of Wisdom, people come to you for advice and to find out your opinion- because they can trust that what you will tell them is “excellent, wholesome and good.”

Can your friends trust you to tell the truth? Are you currently in a situation that is getting complicated and “twisted” because you haven’t been honest? As hard as it will be, we pray that today’s verses will urge you to take the first step in untangling the situation you’re in-

By becoming more like Wisdom and choosing to be a Truth Teller.
