I’ve been doing work on 2 and 3 John this week and so my mind is on truth.  One cannot understand these two short letters without first comprehending what the author means by truth.  Truth is something that is genuine. That is real.  It is the opposite of falsehood.

Truth, though, is more than something you attest to.  Truth is something we abide in, something that we live.  Christians practice truth.  We abide in truth.  Our lives are centered in truth and it is seen in what we do.  Truth that is unadorned is worthless. Today, how will you practice and abide in truth?
