Perennial Honesty

This is Perennial Honesty, or lunaria rediviva. The Latin means ‘reviving’ or ‘growing again’. And so with the virtue after which it is named. Falsehoods and lies may flatter and make us feel better, but there’s nothing so reviving as honest truth. What does our culture need more of, if not perennial honesty? Honesty that will not be silenced nor hidden away, but keeps coming back.

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight. Proverbs 12:22 (ESV)
