“Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment.”
Proverbs 23:23 (NLT)

You would think that “truth” would be a priority in our life. But not so. If we would examine our lives, we would be shocked at how many lies we believe. Dr. Chris Thurman in his book “The Lies We Believe” exposes many of the lies that we take for granted. Lies like, “I must have everyone’s love and approval.” “I can’t be happy unless things go my way.” “Life should be easy.” How about this one, “Because I am a Christian, God will protect me from pain and suffering.” There are so many more that we believe. Jesus told us that truth will set us free. Why? Because He knew that lies keep us in bondage. What can you do? Challenge the lies you believe by asking God for the truth. Lies usually come at the expense of ignorance so Solomon suggests that you also ask God for wisdom and the discipline needed to act on it. Finally, Solomon suggests we exercise good judgment. Good judgment and discernment will keep us living according to the truth we decide to believe. Today, ask God for His truth, wisdom and discipline and let the truth set you free.

Father, it is so easy to believe a lie. Worst, too often I am tempted to live a lie. I need Your help. I want to live in truth. Give me the wisdom, discipline and good judgment I need to know and live the truth today.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
