Daily Meditation for May 2, 2019

“When you hear an opinion and believe it, you make an agreement and it becomes part of your belief system. The only thing that can break this agreement is to make a new one based on truth. Only the truth has the power to set us free.” Fake news…lies…loud voices shouting mere opinions…easy talk…gossip…needing to have the  last word on everything, “come hell or high water,” none of these advance society or feed our souls. We must seek to know the truth that alone has the power to set us free…and only then ought we to speak that partial truth, humbly! “No fake news, today, Lord; please do not let me speak anything but the truth lest someone hear and be deceived. Furthermore, help me remember that my piece of the truth may simply be that, one small piece.”
