does the truth really hurt?
good question eh? "sometimes the truth hurts." always has been an interesting saying to me. it may initially hurt if someone has told you something that you don't want to hear but i dare to say that the truth is relieving. because if you think about it, if someone tells you something that you didn't really want to hear, like for example, your hair is ugly or wow, who said that ever looked good on you?, it stings at first but isn't relieving to know that someone cares enough about you to be straight up with you and tell you something that you may just need to know.i mean the truth is better then lying right, because if you are lied to then i dare say that you weren't worth the truth. people can get over the sting of the truth if it indeed hurts them..it's not like it is going to last forever. it may last a couple minutes, hours, days, weeks but does the truth hurt longer then that? just move on if it does. the truth is a powerful thing. doesnt the bible tell us to rely on the truth? it indeed does! isn't our Lord full of grace and truth? yep. and isn't it in john 8? where it says the truth makes us free? so, my friends, the question of the day is: does the truth really hurt?
