Left to myself, I don’t think straight. I believe the lies that are currently popular. God gives me His truth as a moral compass, a reference point to guide me.
It’s not my job to fix the compass so it points the direction I want it to. I must believe the truth as it is, thank God for it, and seek to communicate it graciously to others. I start by believing that He is telling the truth, no matter how controversial that truth may seem in a world that changes “truths” like troupe actors change clothes.
In this video, I share more thoughts about how the truth doesn’t start with us, but with Jesus, who said He is “the way, the truth, and the life."
