Esteem rejoices in the truth

Can we agree to define truth as opposite of injustice? 

Perhaps it becomes more clear when we try to express it with other words such as sincerity, veracity, integrity and justness.

There is no question that esteem and truth are closely connected with each other.  Each helper word we used to explain truth we can use also to express esteem.

Often we distinguish between esteem as reward and genuine esteem.  Esteem as reward seems to be superficial and non-durable.  This kind of “esteem” can sometimes cooperate with injustice.

Genuine esteem on the other hand brings truth with it, shows reliability and empathy.

When we experience truth in our life we rejoice in it because we are connected to genuine esteem – for others and for us.
