Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.”
In our time, it is not values that we desperately need, but virtue. We must be able to differentiate truth and fact. We acquire facts, but learn truth. Facts deal with knowledge, and knowledge can double, but truth never changes and is settled for eternity. We must make a habit of treasuring truth.
We must prize the truth, for it is indispensable, absolute, and attainable through the Word of God. It is not enough just to know it; knowledge without transformation avails nothing. We must see the transforming power behind it, through the Holy Spirit.
Salvation is free, but truth is costly; you pay a price to have truth. John 8:31-32 says, “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’”
• Have you learned the difference between facts and truth?
• Why must the Word of God be the foundation of truth in our lives?
Take time to journal today some ways that the truth of God has set you free.
