Lying lips are extremely disgusting and hateful to the Lord; but they who deal faithfully are His delight. Prov 12 v 22 AMP


Being truthful is not fashionable or interesting and considered naïve. However God delights in truth and aligns it with faithfulness – being full of faith.

God intends us to be transparent with Him. He sees all and is willing to forgive and heal all.

God intends us also to be transparent with our spouse. Perhaps we will need to forgive and heal each other too since we are imperfect beings.

God help me find untruth disgusting – in myself first and foremost! I want to choose always to deal faith fully with my husband. Is there anywhere where you are opaque rather than transparent?

Prayer (as a couple)

Father forgive me that I compromise truth sometimes. Help us both to keep clean windows turned towards each other and to you. Thank you that you are willing to wash us clean. Amen

Prayer (for others)

Lord Jesus you show us what holiness and faithfulness look like. We pray for the Christians we know – who are our friends. Help them (and us) to be transparent and to shine like bright lights in our world which is often dark and dirty. Amen

Final quote

The light of the righteous grows brighter and rejoices; but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out shortly. Prov 13 v 9
