Truth sayer or sooth sayer

There was a time when people would say, “just tell me the truth, I can handle it”.
As time goes by, those people appear to be at a premium, or they’ve decided to hit the mute button.
Contemporary interactions tend to be filled with people willing to hit the mute or delete button when they don’t want to hear the truth especially using social media.
If you’re sending them a text, email or inbox direct message, they avoid answering or dealing with life by blanking/ghosting/airing the individual looking for a response.
When you speak to said individuals face to face, they attempt to change the subject, use the passive aggressive method of silence, or they go as far as walking out of the room.
People are getting harder, preparing to be wrong and strong, by refusing to admit to error and this coincides with a rising number of people who would rather be lied to, than face truth.
Please don’t misunderstand me, sometimes being quiet or muting/deleting is necessary, especially when people are taking things out of context, deliberately looking for a fight or simply being cantankerous.

Those of us who are compelled to tell the truth, know it’s always for the best, truth literally does set individuals free.
In the area of teaching, counselling, future predicting or any form of public speaking, you have ‘Truth sayers’ and ‘Sooth sayers’.
The former seeks to do the right thing in honesty telling people what they ‘need’ to hear, the latter seeks to be popular, telling people what they think they ‘want’ to hear, even if they have to lie.
The former pleases God, the latter seeks the approval of people.

Those taking the journey with me know what I’m all about, those attempting to ignore me do too.
This Truth teller will continue to do just that, those who matter, will accept that.

  1. The Word says, hear a lie and believe it. As I sit here and ponder just that this morning. There are millions doing this while the remaining of us are praying. Truth is found within. I was told one time by a very good friend, “Mandy, follow your heart.” The heart knows, yes indeed the heart knows all.

    • Hi Mandy,
      As always, thanks for taking the time to comment here.
      I always appreciate comments and never take them for granted. 🙂
      Yes, sadly many believe ‘a lie’, as they are usually more appealing and ‘ego-stroking’.
      There are many ‘truths’ but only one ultimate truth (John chapter 14 verse 6) and again, sadly, many rebel against Him.
      We can listen to our heart/conscience but we have to be aware of the warning given to us about the heart and desires (Jeremiah chapter 17 verse 9).
      I sigh, again, as many solely want to “follow their heart” without taking head to the warning given to Jeremiah or seeking guidance from the ultimate Truth and His word.
      Which is the reason why so many of us do things in error, solely believing if our hearts want something or we ‘think’ it’s right, that it’s good enough.
      As always sis, #GoodTalk 😉
