While working through several concerns this week, in prayer this came to my mind and heart: There is a heavy shortage of truth in this world nowadays. I submit that a prime reason for this is that Christians forget or willfully ignore the wonderful, inexhaustible verity of the one, real truth.
To make the whole matter worse, this forgetfulness and ignorance bear awful, bitter fruit amidst the Christian family, and worst, result in an image of the church that the wanting, waiting world regards and then turns away in revulsion; the very opposite desire of our LORD that we be light and salt. Relativists look askance at this existential wasteland and roll out marketplaces of truths for the choosing.
We have work to do. Repentance first, though.
