Listening to Lies
In our world today, many people prefer to hear lies rather than truth. In Isaiah's day, many didn't want to hear that they were sinning and needed to get right with Holy God before judgment fell. They told Isaiah, "You must not prophesy to us what is right, speak to us pleasant words, prophesy illusions" (Isaiah 30:10). They wanted to hear how wonderful they were and how lucky God was to have them in His life. How twisted is that!? What about you? Would you rather hear the truth or hear lies? To be sure, the truth often hurts, but it is SO NECESSARY. Let me encourage you to walk in the light with people of the light. Spend time each day listening to the truth of God's Word. And make sure you have people in your life who are true friends, those who will love you enough to tell you the truth. When you do, you’ll find Real Hope!
