Ground of All Being-

Someone recently told me that I need to work less on being good and more on being honest.

You know. You were there.

And I replied, “Honesty is not one of the fruits of the Spirit.”

And she said, “Are the other fruits real without honesty?”

Help me to sit with this, to hold it, to ponder it.

Grant me the courage and will to live into this truth.
