Maybe you have noticed, as I have, that the rumor mongers are alive and well! They are very busy with all kinds of rumors, conspiracies, scams and creating fear, everywhere they can.
It really doesn’t matter where you turn, it’s in politics, churches, work environments and even in your personal lives. If someone you know said it, it must be true. Unfortunately, it’s a little like the old game we played when I was young, you pass a story down by whispering it to the next person in line until it reaches full circle. Remember how the end story differed from the beginning story?
That’s a really important lesson. In the first place, if it doesn’t directly affect you, should you be passing it on at all? Always keep in mind how many people could be harmed. It can affect individuals, marriages, churches and even nations.
Everyone‘s searching for the truth these days…Finding it seems ever more difficult.
Who should we trust to tell us the truth?
Whose word should we believe?
How can each of us live a life of truth?
Psalm 119:160 “The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.”
Most of us have the ultimate guide to wisdom in our homes, even if it hasn’t been used faithfully. The Bible is the best resource for answers to most questions. It is full of wisdom and God’s truth. Isn’t that what we should be looking for?
Study What’s Real to Detect What Isn’t True – Rick Warren
“Since only your rules can give me wisdom and understanding, no wonder I hate every false teaching.” Psalm 119:104 (TLB)
The only way to really know what’s fake is to know what’s real.
Many people today fall for foolish ideas because they don’t know the truth. And because they don’t know what’s authentic, they can’t spot a lie.
That’s why it is so important to study God’s Word. By knowing biblical truth, you’ll be able to spot false teaching.
The psalmist wrote, “Since only your rules can give me wisdom and understanding, no wonder I hate every false teaching” (Psalm 119:104 TLB).
By the time a typical American student graduates from high school today, he or she will have spent more than 30,000 hours in front of a screen (including video games, tablets, laptops, and TVs).
Any guess how long it takes to read the entire Bible—all 66 books? It takes just 80 hours.
We have the time. The question is, how will we use our time? God gave us his Word to give us the wisdom we need to live a fulfilling and productive life.
Make the most of this awesome gift by making time to study it today and every day.
