Since time began and as we leaned about Adam and Eve, truth is one of the cornerstones God is teaching us, he teaches us many lessons. We all know about speaking a little white lie or not coming clean when speaking to our spouse. Why? What prompts us to fudge with the one we love? Our word is important and what we say to our spouse matters. It all gets back to being a trusting and loving spouse. In Proverbs 6 Jesus shares the seven things God hates, and two of them relate to lying, so for me just saying like it is be right up front is ok, respect and understanding come from a communication that is built of truth. Love is marrying that person, consistently doing what is best for him or her, and staying faithful for the rest of your life.
The wildlife animals and the wild kingdom are true and faithful, they abide by God’s laws too or they would perish. Next year my sons Norm and Chris and Me are going elk hunting, in the rugged mountains, no luxury or electricity, just horses, no other people other than our hunting camp and so we will be in what I can say is the ” wilderness ” our whole way for that week is based on God and his majesty in all things and our very existence depends on listening to God. Keep posted and bless everyone you know and remember a stranger is only a friend you have not met yet. God speed and peace be yours. Most of all best wishes and may love abide.
