Sunday Meditation: Speak Truth No Matter How Hard

No matter how hard it is, life is too short and people deserve the truth. We can apply reason and logic to discover the truth. This quest is a fundamental aspect of our human nature.

Jesus prayed to His Father for the disciples, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17).

Western universities, for example, were founded on the pursuit of veritas.  Veritas. Veritas seems to have begun its Latin life as the abstraction of a quality of human behavior. The human behavior of having veritas was honorable. Our national conversation about the brazen and shameless use of blatant falsehoods for personal and political reasons should go far beyond politics. This assault on truth should concern us spiritually as Christians.

The disregard for what is true, and the cynical spreading of blatant falsehoods, presents great spiritual dangers, and not just political ones, to those who might acquiesce to or embrace these tactics.The Bible says that the law of God is written on the heart of every person (Romans 1:32; 2:15). It says that everyone is created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27).

There is reason to believe, then, that your witness to the truth —is important. Speak clearly, stand firmly and love the truth.
