The earth is the LORD’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers. (Psalm 24)
There is a new energy in the air. A new vibration that happens this time of year. You can feel its hum as you walk past any college or university. It was alive and palpable as I walked by Grant McEwen this morning.
Always makes me want to go back to school. Buy new pens and new binders and fresh paper. New unexplored books especially appeal.I like the smell of a book, like to open it in the middle and feel the pages run across my thumb. What new ideas are here? What old ideas newly investigated. What fresh story will change the way I think?
What new truth is there to learn, perhaps relearn? All truth is God’s truth. As such, truth is also inexhaustible. We should mine it all our lives. Unafraid of new frames of reference, new lenses. Unafraid to let old filters fall away.
Truth is never static. Truth is dynamic, active, cutting through preconceptions and presuppositions.
Truth moves, it has shape and style, and certainly beauty.
There is no fear in truth, only love.
