Truth Matters!…

We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square. Michelle Obama

Meditation: The theme of the day is: “truth matters”,“integrity matters” and “honesty matters”. Today the legal branch of our democratic government took leadership after months of quiet investigations. Honesty and integrity still matter! Illegal activities are still being found out. Our legal system matters and works! There is a sense of relief that there is a third branch in our country that has been created to correct when the other two are breaking down in any way. God, you are the One who has given and who is upholding the law to establish justice for all. Your commandments are meant to protect humanity from its dark and destructive sides. Today we are especially grateful for the power of Your law, for integrity and honesty!

Prayer: God of justice, we are grateful that in our democratic country the legal branch is functional and independent. There are countries where this third branch has been taken over by the other two and has been shut down. Not so in our country. God, we are grateful for a functional legal system. We are grateful that law, truth and integrity still exist and will have the last word . God, we are hopeful. We are grateful. Amen

Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out. Proverbs 10:9
