Bullshit leaves a nasty stain…

25 Feb

How do I make you believe something? By telling you the truth. Bullshit leaves a terrible stain, in breeds uncertainty not just in the other person, but also in you.

There is a story in the bible when Jesus meet a young man called Nathanael. Essentially he looks at Nathanael, right at him, right through him and says… “Here is a man about who nothing is false.”

Oh how I long to have the same thing said of me.  You don’t need to shout, coerce, control or manipulate when what you are saying is simply… true.

    Wouldnt it be fanastic if such a thing could be said about everyone? There are so many levels of falseness; what you say, how you say it, what you wear, what you do. Unfortunately it is human nature to crave approval and most people are too busy trying to fit the mould instead of bettering themselves and then being themselves.
