In addition to being stewards of our time and our treasure, we are also stewards of the truth. As James reminds us today, our spiritual birth came through hearing and believing the truth!
In medicine we spend a great deal of time and energy learning the truth about the physiology of the body before we learn about pathology. The more we understand normal function, the better we can understand and identify abnormal function.
The same is true for living life.
The more we understand the truth about ourselves and the world around us, the better we will be equipped to live our life as we should. In fact, much of maturing in life and as a Christian consists of casting off false truths.
We are naïve when we believe things are true when they are not, and the first step away from being naïve is to accept that we don’t yet possess all truth.
That’s called humility.
We should never fear the truth, but continually seek it.
As Christians we are confident that the ultimate truth is found in Jesus Christ and the word He has passed down to us in the Scripture.
Approach today with an attitude of humility…that you have more truth to learn…and the Lord will teach you.
Prayer: Lord, show me the false truths I currently believe!
