Truth Set Free

CALL TO PRAYER
You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.
—John 8:32
PSALM
In all thy deeds how great thou art!
Thou one true God, thy way make clear;
teach me, O Lord, unite my heart
to trust thy truth. thy Name to fear.
—Psalm 86:10-11
Suggested tune (Brynteg):
TEXT OF THE DAY
True instruction was in his mouth, and no wrong was found on his lips. He walked with me in integrity and uprightness, and he turned many from iniquity.
—Malachi 2:6
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Truth set free will break the bonds of sin under which the soul labors, and give true liberty. "I shall walk at liberty," says David, "for I have sought your precepts" [Ps. 119:45]. Licentiousness, to run freely in the directions of one's lusts, is no true liberty. But to walk according to the rules of religion and reason is liberty indeed.
—Thomas Boston, alt.
MORNING PRAYER
From the cowardice that dare not face new truth, from the laziness that is content with half truth, from the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth: Good God, deliver me! Amen.
—Kenyan prayer
