The day an elderly, kind man shared with me his knowledge of the one who raised me. He knew of his hard work at ranching. He knew of his love for the land. He knew of his hunting and trapping adventures.

We reminisced about days past.

He then said enough of my stories, “how do you remember your dad?”

I recounted his teasing spirit. His quiet nature. His love for sweets. His strong work ethic. His knowledge. His pride in his grandchildren. I smile fondly, knowing I can tell so much more.

The trapper friend and I bid farewell. Yet, I am left surprised I didn’t recognize how much the one who raised me spoke the truth in a calm level headed manner. The truth on world issues. The truth of God.

Truth is a universal topic that we all seek to know and understand.

Truth is a universal topic that we all seek to know and understand. However, the truth is revealed when we spend time in God’s word and prayer.

The Bible shows the significance of the truth in Biblical times and our modern-day lives.

“The truth is religious and moral people need the same salvation as someone who never attends church and has lived with no regard for any standard or creed.” (Allistair Begg, Truth For Life)

The Greek word for “truth” is Aletheia, which literally means to un-hide or hiding nothing. It conveys the thought that truth is always there, always open and available to all to see, with nothing hidden or obscured.

John 14:6 

Jesus said to him (Thomas), ” I am the way and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Salvation only comes through Jesus Christ.

1John 5:11-12

“And this is the testimony that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

We have only one story to tell, but it is the only story we or anyone needs. Today, through faith in Christ Jesus, you can be a child of God.

Until next time, Pam.
