You have heard the saying, “The truth hurts.” But I believe the truth sets us free. Free from what? Free from lies, deception, and things that can hurt us. The truth actually sets us free from sin and bondage.
The truth is what God is. He doesn’t have truth — He is truth. And the truth is what helps us to be healthy: spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s deception that hurts us, ignorance that destroys us. Truth does not hurt us; it helps us.
We should pray for God to open our eyes so we can know what is true. When we know what things are true, that’s when we can make decisions for the betterment of ourselves and the ones we love — to live in the light of God’s word, to rid us of deception.
So many in our world are deceived. They are deceived about who Jesus is. They are deceived about right and wrong. They are deceived about what is moral and what is immoral. People are deceived about how to vote, how to raise children, what to do with money. There are so many lies and deceptions that the truth will expose.
Thank God He loves us enough to give us truth so we can live better, be better, and do better.
Just a thought,
