Truth and Fiction

Man holding Bible

Some years ago I heard about a clergyman who had a friend who was an actor. The actor was drawing large crowds of people, and the clergyman was preaching to a few in the church. He said to his actor friend, “Why is it that you draw great crowds, and I have no audience at all? Your words are sheer fiction, and mine are unchangeable truth.” The actor’s reply was quite simple. “I present my fiction as though it were truth; you present your truth as though it were fiction.” I fear that so often we Christians give the idea that the truth is fiction by the way we live and by the lack of dedication to the teachings of our Lord.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, I would completely yield my life to You, so that others may know that the Savior I love and serve is the truth!

    Lord, help us not to focus on fleeting treasures but on You, our most precious treasure. Teach us the joy of reveling in You and Your loving presence and provision in our lives. God bless us all. Amen.
