It seems more common these days to hold one's truth with an iron fist than to hold truth with an open hand. Truth is protected, rather than examined. Truth is defended, rather than shared. Truth is a weapon to condemn, rather than a conviction for one's own edification.
- How do you know when something is true?
- Is your understanding of truth growing or stagnant?
- When confronted by something different, do you feel threatened, curious, or indifferent?
- What if you are wrong in your understanding of truth? Would you have any regrets?
Spend time this week reflecting on these questions and your relationship with truth.
