Truth has always been and will always be very important. Without truth, one can gain neither trust nor respect. That is why it is important for parents to teach their children well, and children are to listen to their parents. If either party fails to do their part, the child will be like a rotten tomato that nobody wants.

I have been teaching the little kids history this year, and am amazed at how consistently the prophets in the Old Testament were right. What if his prophets hadn't always told the truth?
What if God wasn't always right? We would be like a bunch of sheep wandering around in the desert looking for water. We wouldn't be able to gain anything from life because we would be living in lies. If such was to happen now, we would surely feel cheated.

It is true that we are sinners from the start and that it is in our nature to lie, but we have the opportunity to be rescued from our sin, and we can trust that the one that offers that freedom will never give up on us, even when we screw up. Isn't that wonderful? Isn't it great that God is patient enough to teach us? If that's not love, I don't know what is.


  1. Thank-you for your efforts teaching the little ones. It reminds me of when we were going to home group at the Young's house, and John asked me to teach on 1Peter. You are finding out what I did then, the teaching helps you learn much more deeply. Thanks again, and I am so proud of the way God is moving in your heart and mind.

  2. Yes, it is the essence of Love, exactly. It has taken me many, many years to figure out what you already know. You are so blessed.
