What is TRUTH?
This past Sunday our pastor talked about how what we pour into our lives and what we are surrounded by dictate our reality and what becomes "truth" to us. Of course if we surround ourselves with worldly things and "buy into" what the media tells us about ourselves, that will become our truth. We need to chose to surround ourselves with Godly men/women, seek their counsel, and above all us pour into ourselves the Word of God for what TRUTH really is. It made me reflect on the children that are in foster care and what they have heard all their lives, and what they believe is "truth" based on what they have been told. "You're such a bad kid, you're no good, you're not worth it!" Of course those are mild in comparison to many of the stories I have already heard. It breaks my heart, but at the same time I am honored that God has chosen our family to pour into these children HIS truth and how valuable they are to Him (and us!)!!! God is showing us some pretty amazing stuff already and we just started!! :)
