“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God.” This is something that is asked of people who are about to testify about something.

So, what is truth? I can tell you the front of my house is 120 feet wide at least according the standard I used – a four-inch child’s foot. With some help, I put the child’s foot one in front of the other and it was 120 feet.

In Judges 21:25, we read, “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.”

Could God say that of us today, “everyone did as they saw fit.”

For truth to be truth, we must have a standard. The truth is the front of my home is about 40 feet. By using the universal standard of 12 inches, it equals one foot. We know what truth is.

Jesus said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

People will often say, “Just tell me the truth. I can deal with it better if I know the truth.” Today, the truth is we have a pandemic and we, each and every one of us needs to do our part to stem the tide.

God bless you as you continue to move forward during these times – six feet apart of course!
Rev. Jane
