Honest kisses

An honest answer
is like a kiss on the lips.
Proverbs 24:26

Even if it stings, like salt in an open cut.

Even if you wonder why you even asked the question now.

Even if you need to pray for God to give you the wisdom to listen to a critic when you want to lob grenades off a wall of defense.

Even if it doesn't meet with the ideal answer you have in your head.

Even if it forces you to re-examine your own character and to face up to long-term flaws and cherished, ugly sins.

Even if you were hoping for affirmation and a pat on the back, and instead got a reason to go back to the drawing board.

Honesty comes from Truth.
Truth is a Person.
That Person is Jesus Christ.
So an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips from God.
And encounters with God can rock your world.
