The Search For Truth

Standard

I was on my way to church when I learned that I didn’t have enough coins to pay for a ride, so I handed a bill to the driver instead. When I was given coins as change, I looked to see if I received the right amount—no more, no less. I checked, or so I thought. When it was time for me to use the coins for another trip, that’s the time I noticed that one of them was an arcade token.

All this time, we might be embracing something we thought was true. Our hearts will break the moment we find out we’ve been consuming a lie. We could have known from the outset, but we didn’t because we’re too preoccupied to notice. When everything becomes routine, we become incognizant of our every thought, word, and action. We’re awake but all too often we seem asleep. We’re physically present but our minds wander elsewhere. When truth slaps us on the face, only then will we be really awake. It’s exacting to distinguish what’s real from what’s not if we’re going to give it divided attention. Scrutiny takes time; but it’s never wrong to invest time to closely look knowing we’ll earn truth as the profit.
