Mustard Seed Daily DevotionA Truth, A Half-Truth, A Lie?

In the Word

Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment. Proverbs 12:19

Of the Word

Who to believe? What to believe? Is it the infomercial for the skin care product that promises to make our faces wrinkle-free or the one that promises to restore hair to a bald head? Can truth be found in political ads or in all we read on the Internet or hear on television news? Maybe these things aren’t outright lies, but aren’t the half-truth promises just as deceiving?

As Christians we are blessed to have God’s Word. Full of truth, the Bible tells us of God’s ultimate promise – eternal life! Jesus has already paid the price for our sins on Calvary’s cross. When we confess Him as our Savior, we are assured there are no lies or half-truths in His Word.

“If you abide in my word, … you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31b, 32).

A Point to Ponder: Which of God’s wonderful promises can I share with someone today?

Walking with my Lord

Father God, thank You that in this day and age of false promises I can rely on the truth of Your everlasting Word. In the saving name of Your Son Jesus I pray. Amen.
