There is nothing more beautiful than TRUTH. Truth can set us free, it can establish our character, and it can set us apart from others. Those who value truth, value a respectful and honest life.
Today's sermon at church reminded me that the Lord Jesus is, himself, the Truth. All he knows, all he does, all he has blessed me with... is his truth. This helps us to understand why we can put complete trust in him. We can count on him, because he does everything with complete knowledge of what is good and right in life. But what does that have to do with us?
We all seek to live a life that the Lord wants us to live. Therefore, if we live truthfully, like he promises us each and every day we can start to emulate what he has done on earth. When we live truthfully, we can get rid of all our shame, all our guilt, all our insecurities. Because truth is beauty, nothing else matters and nothing else is more important.
I encourage you to be truthful with others today... but most importantly, be truthful with yourself. Be honest, open, and willing to evaluate what you consider most important in life. Are you truthfully seeking something because it is your passion, or because you seek to please someone else? Start by using truth as a way to evaluate your intentions and the way you live life, and you may find that life is way more beautiful when seen through truthful eyes.
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
I hope you have a relaxing and truthful sunday afternoon :)
