Hello and welcome to my space, where I share with you my thoughts and experiences.
I do hope you enjoy today’s reading.
Many at times, TRUST does not come easy to anyone in this world, I personally believe. Why? you may ask. We definitely live in a world full of people who does not want to be truthful and are willing and ready to lie to get away with things.
Why? They could be many reasons, but one reason I believe, is that people are just not willing to be HONEST and TRUTHFUL.
Yes it comes down to you as an individual, because the decision to lie and not be honest is all on us. No one can make an individual LIE or be DISHONEST to his or her fellow human being.
What we as individuals know for sure is that, lying, being dishonest can mess any type of relationship.
The truth is that, we all tell little white lies as we call it, here and there in our daily life’s, though we are not supposed to, we all do but when this lies becomes chronic and constant part of an individual’s lifestyle, is where it becomes a problem and lead to HURT and PAIN.
I did say in the early paragraph that no one can make you lie, and I believe that. I also said people are dishonest because they want to be. I also believe that. The question I have is why do people who say they care, love etc lie to the people they say they love? Few things came to mind…
- TO HIDE THE TRUTH
- TO LIVE A MULTIPLE LIFE
- TO CONTINUE FROM A LIE SAID FROM THE BEGINNING
- TO LOOK BETTER THAN THE OTHER
- TO GAIN RESPECT
- TO GAIN FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
- TO GAIN FRIENDSHIP
The list goes on…..but with all the above and many more, it only leads to one thing, HURT!
So again why do we do it, if we know it will end up hurting the other person?
Can I confidently now say we live in a cruel world?
Finding the truth is never a easy thing but I have good news for you.
BECAUSE MY REDEEMER LIVES I CAN FACE TOMORROW.
Trust no one but GOD. So how do you get into a relationship without trusting, you may be asking?
Trust through God, yes you heard me right. Trust God that, the person or persons you are dealing with will not HURT YOU! Yes that simple.
As long as we live in this world, we will definitely get HURT via a person who is willing to hurt you, regardless of who you are, even if you are good or bad. So be rest assured and prepare yourself for that and most importantly seek to observe people, really take time to get to know the people around you, it can help in minimising the amount of times you get HURT.
“Do unto others what you want others to do unto you”
Is important you know that fact of life and prepare yourself for it, rather than hoping it will never happen, I may be sounding too hash with the previous paragraph but is necessary for you and I to know the truth.
What you and I need to know, is very necessary as well as what we can do. Is very simple, make a conscious effort, never to intentionally HURT anyone around you or with you.
Causes of HURTcan lead to many bad things. Few examples
- Low self-esteem
- Mind and Body conscious
The list we all know goes on and on…
Let’s be one another’s keeper, also ask yourself “ if what I am doing to this individual, is done to me, will I be happy? With an honest answer, I believe you and I will have a second thought.
Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.
2 Samuel 7:28
