In an old episode of Bonanza, Ben Cartwright said, “I don’t have anything against education, as long as it doesn’t interfere with your thinking.”
That’s how a lot of us think. We are all in for truth – as long as it fits our narrative.
I agree with the sage philosopher of the past generation, Elvis Presley, who said, “Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”
I suspect the reason we aren’t always real quick to seek the truth is that the truth can be really uncomfortable. As President Garfield said, “The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.”
If you are to walk in freedom, you must embrace the truth that will set you free.
Recovery Step: Jesus said that if you seek truth, you will find it (Matthew 7:7). But be warned. Before you can deal with the truth, you must let it deal with you.
