Relax and breathe deeply. Allow all that troubles you, all that demands your attention, to fade away. Know that God is with you.
"Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." Pilate said to him, "What is truth?"
"I read it online." " I saw it on the news." " I heard it on the radio." " My neighbor told me." From where do the truths by which we live come? His truth, her truth, their truth-which do we trust? How do we sort through the diversity of truth? As believers, we are called to the only truth-the truth of the Gospel. Simply stated, those who belong to Jesus' truth listen and know. We are assured of where the truth lies-through him, with him, and in him.
Reflect on the places where your truth might conflict with Jesus' truth.
How much, and why, might the world's truths influence you? Find and name the ways that you can embrace and live the truth of the Gospel.
(Pray using this prayer or one of your own.)
Dear God, open my heart to embrace more fully the truth of your Son, Jesus, the Christ.
