Sincerity connects because it’s so rare. Our antenna is up and our tolerance is down. (Deeper Path Team)

We hear a lot about “fake news,” and we’ve all experienced hypocrisy in almost every area of common life. It’s unfortunate that, indeed “our antenna is up” because we too often expect deceit and falsehood. If you want to encourage honesty and sincerity in others, you must show it in your own life.

Honesty guides good people. . . The godly are directed by honesty. (Proverbs 11:3, 5)
