Wendy tells us that honesty lays the foundation for all of our important relationships. We can develop our honesty muscle by responding to honest truth with, “Thank you for saying that.” Or, by switching out our less-than-honest answers with, “That’s not true, I really need to say…” Honesty protects our minds from believing small white lies before they become great big issues. When we are honest with ourselves, with God and with others, we find great depth and true connection — exactly what we are made for!
“Instead, by speaking the truth with love, let’s grow in every way into Christ…” — Ephesians 4:15 CEB
