Lies Over Truth

Truth is difficult to face and yet it has a way of forcing it’s way into your face whether you like it or not.

For years I thought I was a great baseball player, until I attempted to play baseball with real people. Turns out, bouncing a ball off the back wall is not the same thing as real baseball.

For years I thought I was a pretty good looking young man, shouldn’t be too hard to get a girlfriend, what with my good looks and my charm. Yeah. Luckily on this one, all I needed was one.

Experience is a version of truth, you can’t deny what is happening to you, but at the same time, there is really only one truth out there–God’s Word. His truths are even more tough than whether people think you’re good at baseball or whether girls even look at you.

Most lives are spent ignoring God’s Truth. Our world is filled with amusements and distractions that keep us “busy” so we don’t have to think on truth. Music surrounds us, catchy tunes distract our conscious brains so we don’t have time for quiet reflection.

Most human behavior is consumed with promoting lies. We want to make “impressions” on people. Impressions are easier to make than reality, yet most are too consumed with themselves, the odds of them seeing the true you are slim to none anyway.

We’re a culture of the surface. Our religion is just strong enough to impact the surface, but no more, and we seem to like it that way.

But reality will wake you up some day, either in this life or the next, and you’ll see what your accentuation of the surface gets for you. But hey, that day is off in the floaty future somewhere, might as well go back to putting on deodorant and ironing the suit.
