Truth – Part 1 – Spiritual Benefits
Appreciate the Benefits of Honesty
Acting with integrity helps a person maintain his spiritual growth.
When one guards his mouth from ever voicing falsehood, he protects himself from the corrupt influences in the world.
One who distances himself from falsehood in speech and action and from false people will achieve all his desires in this world and the next.
The best way to achieve consistent faith is to act and speak with consistency.
Recite “I have hated falsehood and abhorred it; Your Torah I love.”
