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 While the vast majority of people, including those who voted for the policy leading to the disaster, want the policy repealed, others want to give it a chance to work.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 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
