Sunday Drive - What Is True?

Sunday Drive - What Is True?

Philippians 4:8(NLT)
8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

What does true mean? According to the dictionary, it means in accordance with fact or reality, accurate or exact.

Hmmm.... Does it seem harder to find truth? I struggle knowing what to believe is true in this world. I feel I have to dig a littler deeper to find truth. The media & social media are more concerned with sensationalism and 'spin' to attract advertisers or to keep you in 'the scroll', than spreading or reporting truth.

Why is 'true' the first word in that scripture of what to fix your thoughts on? Ask yourself this, without truth do you have anything that is worthy of thought? Without truth is anything honorable and right? Is anything pure or lovely and admirable? Truth is the foundation of our lives. Filling our minds with the word of God. That is the one thing I know is true and I can trust in it with all that I am.

I'm sure you've heard the parable of the wise and foolish builders.

Luke 6:47-48(NIV)
47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

Truth is our foundation, Jesus, His Word.

Yes, this world is full of brokenness and lies, but if you search a bit you can still find good. There is so much that is excellent and praiseworthy. We need to share those buried treasures, to show that there is still hope and beauty in this world.

If we fix our eyes on Jesus, you will be amazed at the true, honorable, right and pure things you will see. 

Hebrews 3:1(NIV)
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.

You will find there is much to be thankful for. He can even transform troubles into something praiseworthy!

Blessings,
Lori
