“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.” Psalm 51:6
Insincerity Robs a Man of His Dignity
Insincerity takes all dignity out of life and makes this world a very low place. We think we can be insincere, and men will be tricked and never find it out. O brethren, God Almighty has His own awful ways of writing a man’s insincerity upon the heavens and engraving it as with a pen of iron on the world.
- All reverence is impossible,
- All purity is stained,
- All innocence rebukes me when I am insincere.
If I am false and double, I cannot hear the laughter of my children but what it sends a pang of pain into my heart.
- Better be excitable,
- Better be inconsistent,
- Better be dead than insincere.
Peter was excitable, brimful of inconsistencies; yet if ever a sincere heartbeat, it was the heart of Peter–and Jesus was Christ to Peter and heaven was heaven. But Judas, I don’t know what his other sins were, was insincere till he came to feel the very sincerity of Jesus was like an insult; and, insincere, he went to his own place.
