There's a song out there that says, "I'm a liar who's always seeking the truth." I would have to say that includes many of us in this world.
Seeking truth is what waylays some people in life. They head out looking for truth and end up getting caught up in lies.
But why is that, is the ultimate destination is The Truth?
I submit to you that it is because they start their journey for truth without an instrument that is capable of measuring it correctly.
By what ruler do you measure the truth? One of my Bible college professors, Keith Hosea, asked that of his students one day. We sat looking at him and wondered what the heck he meant. But once he explained it, it all made sense.
Basically, if you measure the truth with something outside of the Bible, then your measuring instrument is faulty...inaccurately inaccurate.
So, when you realize that people who think they've encountered truth are so wrong, realize that they are using the wrong measuring stick.
Today, take a moment to check your calculations on your measuring stick for truth.
