Star Trek’s reliable source of logic, Mr. Spock, once said, “Insufficient facts always invite danger.” The Bible concurs, as Hosea 4:6 states, “…My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”
Scripture consistently warns us of the dangers of ignoring the truth and urges us to diligently seek out the Lord’s wisdom and put it into practice. Jesus says, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32). Satan, the deceiver, wants us to remain slaves to all kinds of lies. It is only through accepting the truth that we can truly live in freedom. Paul the apostle writes, “For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.” (2 Corinthians 13:8). Any attempt to go against the truth will ultimately be frustrated. The only meaningful accomplishments in life occur through our willingness to accept the truth.
Take some time today to consider some of the ways that the truth is being called into question in our society today. Let’s also think about specific ways that we can show that we are indeed dedicated to the truth.
