When we are little, our parents try to do their best to teach us about right and wrong; true and false. And when we lied when we were little, we faced consequences. Over the last several months, when I’ve turned on the news, I find myself wondering if the world was ever taught about right and wrong; true and false. How can this leader say that? Or how can that candidate be condemned for a mistake that was made?
In all actuality, I find myself grasping at what is even truth these days. I’ve found myself stuck trying to clear my way through the fog trying to see what is right and wrong. More days than not, I find myself wondering what is truth anymore. What I thought I knew is no longer clear!
The truth is found right here in Psalm 86. “Teach me your way, oh Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name.” (Psalm 86:11) If I cling to this truth, the truth of our Lord, then perhaps truth will become even clearer to me in the midst of our broken divided world.
During these 40 days of Lent, I am going to do my best to find the truth of the gospel in the midst of a world that is oppressed, and broken, and divided. Will you join me in educating yourself and finding that truth too?
