Life and truth

Prov 6:23 For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life

What is true and what is not true in our day and age is can be a difficult thing to determine. In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s inauguration we heard the words, ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ thrown around. During an interview, the phrase ‘alternative facts’ was answered with these wise words, "Wait a minute. Alternative facts? ... Alternative facts are not facts.”

As we seek to live out our lives as Christians in a world that has such little regard for the truth, where should we be looking? Who are we to listen to? Are there really absolute truths?

To answer this, we’re going to see that truth and wisdom comes from the life of Jesus and the Word of God. By listening to what God has to say we are able to see truth in all areas and aspects of our life. I hope that as we look at how we as Christians should consider truth in our lives that we are challenged and encouraged by God’s word to us in the book of Proverbs.
