What Does It Mean to Love the Truth?


Do we really love the truth?

Many never question what they’ve been taught.

Many believe whatever they want to believe.

But if we truly love the truth, what will we do?

We will do our homework.

When the Bereans heard Paul preach, “they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).

We will accept the truth even when it’s not palatable.

Not all truth is pleasant or easy. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine . . . and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

We will put the truth into practice!

What good does it do to discover truth if we don’t obey? (Matthew 7:24-27; James 1:21-25)

So let’s search for the truth, accept it even when it’s hard, then live it!
