Proverbs 30:5  Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection. (NLT)

A well-known magazine widely considered a thought leader with its long-form essays and elegant styling recently carried an article about a disastrous policy that has wrecked an entire region. While the vast majority of people, including those who voted for the policy leading to the disaster, want the policy repealed, others want to give it a chance to work. 

This means more four-year-olds will die unnecessarily. More adults will succumb to forces far beyond their control. More people will double down on the argument that all things are permissible. Far too few will speak the truth in love and declare how not all things are profitable, beneficial, or welcome.

We still are our brother’s keeper. We still bear the blame if we could prevent his death and do not. Sin still crouches at our door. We dare not open the door and let it in. Once inside, it ruins lives, destroys families, and damages communities. 

Addiction has its cures. Let’s find them and employ them as widely as possible. Also, let’s prevent them as broadly as necessary. Pick up both ends of this stick. 

There is hope for everyone. There is a future for those who seek God and discover life that is really life. Truth liberates. It makes life bigger, broader, and better. Sin encroaches. It hems in. It limits. It destroys as patiently as required and as quickly as allowed. 

Know the truth and how it sets you free. (See John 8:31, 32. See also John 14:1-6.) Jesus is Truth and Life. He is the Way. God’s Word (John 1:1-3) is full of grace and truth (1:17). 

Today is a good day to celebrate God’s Truth. It is a good day to embrace it and allow it to enlarge our lives. 

I will build my life on God’s truth which is full of direction, grace, and truth.

Our Father, the Way is yours; lead me into it. The Truth is yours; shape my heart and mind with it. The Life is yours; empower me to live it. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
