“Truth is the coin of the realm.” We expect people to speak the truth to us, and when they do not we resent it. Our God speaks to us in truth. He is absolutely reliable. He can be fully depended upon. Truth is essential to make things work. Truth is vital between husband and wife. Truth is essential in financial dealings. Truth is the goal, but not always the result in our legal processes. I fear that a great deal of lying goes on in our courts. Think of “Curiosity”, the rover that continues to send back exciting information from Mars. Its creation and building had to be in conformity with principles of truth, or it would never have succeeded in its mission. The plan for The Curiosity voyage to Mars had to be in harmony with the truth. If it were not in accord with truth, it would be wandering off in space with an unknown destination. When a student enrolls in college, he or she properly expects the representations of the college to be true.
WEAKER WHEN WE DEPART FROM IT.
