….The Truth Shall Set You Free

Let’s analyze the truth here. Where’s the story for our truth analyses? Well there’s no story but let’s analyze the truth anyway. What’s truth? Honestly I can’t put it in words but I’m sure I know what truth is. We always face decisions every second of our lives and there are only two outcomes to these: truth or other? As humans, most of us weigh up the options and normally take the easiest option we feel available which in most cases isn’t the truth.
Why do we do that? Simple..I just explained it, we feel the need to take the cheapest way out. The phrase “….the truth shall set you free” seems easy to relate to when we aren’t faced with any choices to take but as soon as a decision is to be made that phrase mostly isn’t in consideration. What is truth? Truth is good. Good is such a broad term, but really truth is good. I recently decided to try to live an entire day without lying. Honestly, I don’t know how I fared but it felt really good because it made me happy knowing I’m being straight with my self with everything and not having to try and put on a charade for anyone. I felt light actually. No real problems weighing on me and I found my self smiling a lot. Now the problem with this was I noticed that I was a really good liar that I started believing some of my lies. So when I decided to try and go a whole day without lying I struggled at first because I had to think before giving an answer. I’m not saying the truth is pretty. It could be pretty, bad, nasty but once it’s the truth it’s the truth and it shall set us free. Standing for the truth is supposed to be easy as that’s the right path, but is it? Surely I’m not the only one who feels the truth mostly creates more harm at first than good. That’s the funny aspect and the striking difference between the truth and the lie. The lie really seems sweet in the beginning and everything is alright whiles the truth seems difficult at the onset but lies no matter how good we feel they are never lasts and eventually the truth comes out. So why can’t I just get the truth over with and leave the rest to God. For in everything we do, at the end if the day the truth prevails. This isn’t even rocket science or religion it’s just life and one of its laws. What is truth? Truth is God. In the beginning God created the world and designated mankind in charge of everything in it except one. The fruit of the tree of knowledge. But mankind’s heart was corrupted by the devil (the lie) and we know what happened next. The lie became sin and sin in turn death. But some two thousand years ago Jesus being the way, truth and life came to live among men to show us what truth is like. He died for our lies, conquered it and now the truth is made available to us by believing in Him and giving ourselves whole hearted to Him. “Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14.
Good vs evil, truth vs lie? Deep down we know who always wins, aren’t we winners? Let’s root for the winning team and stick with them forever. Amen
