Felt like “Fudging”

Proverbs 10:9 “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.”


As parents, we’ve all encountered those moments of “half-truths” or a slight bending of reality from our children. Whether it’s the rushed cleaning of a room or the mysteriously disappearing snacks, we know the dance of truth and evasion all too well. It’s not just children, though; we’ve all been guilty of presenting things in a vague or evasive way to avoid facing the truth head-on.

But truth isn’t something we can mold to fit our convenience. It stands firm, like a rock in the storm. It’s not arbitrary or moving; truth is an unyielding force that ultimately reveals itself, no matter how hard we try to conceal it. Jesus spoke of this unshakable truth, promising that following his teachings would lead to freedom rooted in him, in reality: “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

In a world where “your truth” and “my truth” often collide, we’re left searching for something more substantial than opinions and personal experiences. What if truth isn’t just a set of rules or a perspective, but a person? The Bible introduces us to Jesus, who embodies truth in its purest form.

Jesus doesn’t just offer us a list of dos and don’ts; he invites us into a relationship with truth himself. In a world craving stability and authenticity, Jesus is the anchor we desperately need. He not only guides us through life, but holds the key to our eternal destiny.

While our culture may offer fleeting answers and temporary fixes, the Bible reveals the timeless truth that satisfies our deepest longings. It’s not just a book of rules but a gateway to a life-transforming relationship with Jesus – the ultimate source of truth and fulfillment for us all.


When faced with difficult decisions or temptations to compromise truth for personal gain, choose to stand firm in God’s truth. Trust that honoring God’s principles will ultimately lead to greater blessings and fulfillment.


Lord, forgive me for the times I have strayed from your truth, whether through actions or misguided beliefs. Help me to align my heart and mind with your Word, that I may walk in integrity and righteousness. You are the ultimate source of truth. Give me the power to live out your truth with wisdom and love, honoring you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
