2018 11 18: The Freedom of Truth

So in the spirit of stewardship season, in addition to examining our bank accounts and our spending habits, I urge us to consider those things that we hold close to our hearts, the things that, when knocked around or displaced or challenged, we rise up quickly to defend, to put back in the same spot, to restore equilibrium as quickly as possible. Because those are the things that have weaseled into our hearts. Whatever leaves us feeling adrift when it’s removed, whatever shoves us into irritation when it’s shifted, whatever makes us all twitchy when it’s disturbed, that is what we’ve been making into a god. That’s the thing that’s been controlling our thoughts and spinning up lies in our heads.
