Daily Thought For July 12, 2014

The Importance of Christian Conduct

In a world where so many people habitually think little of a lie and indulge in pretenses, we, as Christians must be men and women of truth who always flee from even the smallest falsehood. This is how people should know us - as men and women who never tell lies even in matters of little importance, as men and women who shut out of their lives anything that smacks of dissimulation, hypocrisy and duplicity, and who know how to put matters right if they make a mistake. Then our lives will be filled with a great apostolic fruitfulness, for people always trust an upright person, one who knows how to speak the truth with charity and understanding towards all and without hurting people.
