I love writing posts–that is, when everything flows properly and in a timely fashion. If not, forget it!!
(Yeah, I gotta work on that.)
But, anyway, I also love writing because I like to see, hear, read what I think.
(Yeah, I know, that’s an incriminating confession too.)
I also love to discover truth–what will help me and others–and that happens most effectively when I write. It’s not that I do a lot of truth-producing–no it’s out there all on its own. But, when I go looking for it, I find it.
How about you, do you like seeking out truth? Do you like finding out what is real and what’s not? Does it intrigue you to know the reasons behind things?
If you do, maybe we’re a lot alike. Really, that’s not all that important, but in any event, I hope you do love discovering truth. And, not just discovering truth, but letting God incorporate it into who you are.
(Yeah, that’s definitely the harder part!)
Letting truth be incorporated into who we are–letting it change who we are–is really a gift. It is sweet, though it does not come without a pinch, or in some cases, a punch.
But, that’s okay when you consider the alternative: Living without truth is a death all its own. While accepting truth involves death to some part of us, accepting lies (or half-truths, as we may call them) are a death to every part of us. There’s no getting out of it. We are claimed by what we believe; defined by what we choose to live by.
There’s no other way that this could be. It’s a fair system and we’re given a fair choice. The question is which one will we claim as our own?
Truth or Dare–which will win in the end? …Or which will keep us from really losing?
