Honest really is the best policy. "Truth, Justice and the American Way", was the catch phrase of the comic book superhero, Superman. A statement like that today would be considered offensive to some. Some people today would take issue with even a fictional character standing for American values. At one time, standing up for truth and justice, was the American way. My how things have changed. Regardless of whatever direction our country takes, truth and justice are the Christian way. It is the way of our King and His everlasting kingdom. Like today’s gold nugget says, “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
The truth last forever, but every lie has an expiration date on it. Some people will lie today, knowing it will be expose tomorrow. They know that they will benefit from it today and assume it will not matter later. However, every lie is toxic and destructive. It’s best that we embrace the long term benefits of walking in truth.
