There are instances in our life that we blind ourselves to the truth to avoid doing what is right. We give ourselves reasons and excuses to turn away from the truth. Sometimes not even because the truth is painful but because it might hinder us in our search for fame and fortune, or entail us to deprive ourselves of pleasure and fun, or force us to move out of our comfort zone. Look back and remember a time in your life when you turned you back on truth and took the easy road. How did that affect your life?
When we find it hard to face truth, we must remember Jesus’ words “I am the way, the truth, and the life” Meditate on these words and be assured that God will give us the strength and the courage to face our truths with grace.
