What Does It Mean to Suppress the Truth?

Truth suppression comes in many forms, such as silencing, censoring, covering up, boycotting, sequestering, and even “canceling.” We hear a lot about transparency, but sadly it is often missing in the words and deeds of business, government, media, and personal relationships. Why do we “suppress the truth”?

Don't Be Half-Hearted

Have you ever noticed that the most popular, most successful practitioners of sports, music, or any endeavor—those we consider stars and heroes—are never half-hearted? Quite the opposite, they pursue their craft with zeal, dedication, passion, spirit, and all their heart.

Can You Handle the Truth?

“You can’t handle the truth!” is a famous line in the 1992 movie, A Few Good Men. Naval lawyer Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise), questioning Base Commander Colonel Nathan Jessup (Jack Nicholson), says he wants the truth. Colonel Jessup yells in response, “You can’t handle the truth!” Can you handle the truth?

Real Hope is NOT Just a Wish

We live in trying and stressful times. Now, more than ever, we need to have hope. Today, hope is generally considered a feeling of wishing for or desiring something. Is that the kind of hope we need?

People say things like, “I hope our team wins,” or “I hope I get this job.” We desire these things to happen, considering our preferred outcome possible but not assured.

Are You Using Your Gifts?

God has given many gifts to each of us. We’ve not only been given life, food, clothing, and shelter, but we have also been given individual talents, inborn or innate aptitudes, and abilities. Are we developing them and using them in the right way for good purposes?

These wide-ranging gifts may be mechanical and mathematical or musical and artistic. We may be good at organizing, analyzing, strategizing, communicating, teaching, networking, influencing, negotiating, designing, singing, entertaining, encouraging, or empathizing. Human beings are certainly very gifted!
