Truth’s Sting & Salve

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Truth is like honey, it’s sweet and heals. But, before its sweetness, it often stings. And just like the honeybee dies after losing its sting, so truth comes to nothing when you strip it of its sting. Today, everyone seems to be avoiding truth’s sting and so they are void of its sweetness. Value the truth even though it hurts, because after the hurt comes the healing. Jesus said, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (‭John‬ ‭8‬:‭31-32‬, NASB).
