How often do we really want to hear the truth? We may be able to take the truths of others quicker then we can ourselves.(Gossiping) When the truth of oneself is exposed it is a vulnerability often times painful to take. We have to be good with God and ourselves to accept them (truths). So many times human nature sets up a denial/defensive method or methods to protect ourselves from the truth. Here's the thing God sees all and God is okay with it. We have to learn to do the same. Okay so you made a mistake. Admit that you were wrong. Ask forgiveness and move on. When you are true to yourself, God loves you. You love you. And others will love you too.
2 Timothy 2:15 Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.
