Thought for the week: Proverbs 23:23 reads, “Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.” From centuries ago, teachers have linked this fine encouragement with Proverbs 1:7 and 9:10. Wisdom and knowledge flow from respect for God. Others remind us of John 14:6 and 17:17. Jesus embodied truth, wisdom, and understanding. Part of loving the Lord is loving truth. Part of loving the Lord is living the truth. Part of loving the Lord is teaching His truth to all who will hear. We’re blessed to be surrounded by seekers of truth. We’re blessed to encourage one another to walk in truth (2 John 4, 3 John 4).
