When I read that tonight’s Five Minute Friday prompt word was truth, the below Psalm specifically the second verse of Psalm 15 came to mind. Do I speak the truth from a sincere heart? I am afraid I often let my thoughts run away from me, without passing them through the filter, of “Is this true?” The problem with that is that if my thoughts are not being made obedient to Christ, than it is much easier to speak words that are not true, and base my actions on my feelings instead of the truth. I think that this is the reason that it is important to ask God to help me focus on His truth. I need to let His word be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105) I want to do a better job of keeping my focus on “whatever is whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
