Bearing Truthful Witness

Can I get a witness to testify of my truth? That’s a holy, childlike question we are all asking of each other.

Whenever we witness about the mistakes, frailties and shortcomings of ourselves and each other, we are witnessing falsely. And in sharing this false witness, we strengthen our belief in fear.

Whenever we witness about the sacredness of ourselves and all others, the truth that you, me and all others are children of the Most High God, created in God’s perfect likeness and image, we are witnessing truth. And in sharing this truthful witness, we strengthen our belief in love. 

In sharing the truthful witness of love about ourselves and one another, we don’t find gratitude in the suffering of others, so we no longer say, “By the grace of God there go I,” we now say, “By the grace of God there goes a part of God, my brother, my sister whom I need to go meet and bear truthful witness to, so that together we remember and are reminded that we are all sacred blessings, miracles, and gifts.”
