Freedom, just to be yourself

Morning: Psalm 146, 147; Genesis 27:30-45; Romans 12:9-21 
Evening: Psalm 85, 86; John 8:21-32

The more you listen to Jesus the clearer it becomes … he does not teach truths as facts about the world; he invites us into ‘truth’, or wisdom.  Truth, for Jesus, is found in relationship. Untruth leads to disconnection from others, the world, and ourselves.  Living a lie – trying to be somebody we’re not – causes breakdowns in relationships.  Jesus represents the truth that is the foundation of this world of ours.  Who does not want truth?  Who does not want the freedom that truth brings … just to be yourself, and to be pleased with who you are?
