JOY IN TRUTH
Bible in A Year: Ezekiel 7, Ezekiel 8, Ezekiel 9; Hebrews 6:13-19, Hebrews 7:1-10; Psalm 119:161-168
“I hate and detest falsehood but I love your law.”
Psalm 119:163 NIV
When I was nine, my family faced an unexpected hardship. After coming back from the mountain serving in the Karen National Army, my father suffered from malaria, which left him unable to support our family. This situation led me to quit school and work as a housemaid. I followed a lady who took me to my work place. I worked for a doctor’s family. One day, a patient from a village brought oil, eggs, and dried fish to the doctor’s house. I told them the doctor would come back at noon, so they waited. Upon returning home, the doctor was unhappy when he saw the patient waiting. Nevertheless, he provided medical care for this patient. Afterward, the doctor told me, “Next time when patients come, tell them the doctor is busy in the operating room and will not come back.” I heeded what he said. Next time, there was a patient who was a mayor. He came with his wife wearing lots of jewelry dripping in gold. They also brought many gifts and eateries. I did not allow them to come in and gave them the message the doctor previously instructed me to give. When the doctor came back, he asked me if anyone came by. I told him about the mayor’s visit. He got mad at me for not letting them in and scolded me. I was hurt by it. However, before I left home to work, my father told me, “Live and speak truthfully. Do not lie. God will bless you.” Thinking about how I listen to my father brought joy to me. It is by grace that I got to attend Sunday School, read the scripture, and pray. I learned about God’s law, and loving God means obeying Him.
How are lies creating problems in your life? How are truths adding joy and satisfaction in your life?
Heavenly Father, thank you for blessing me and caring for me. Take my hands and guide me as You will. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
