An offering from Lil: Show me truth in the face of false…

Romans 3:2-4 To begin with, the Jews are entrusted with the oracles of God. What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Let God be true though every man be false, as it is written,

“That thou mayest be justified in thy words,
and prevail when thou art judged.”

Let God be true though every man be false…

God is true.

Man is false.IMG_0618

In a world so focused on material things, how do I hold this?

How do I make room for this?

Everywhere I turn, I am faced with temptation, with something that feeds my false self.

This is my Lenten prayer:

Holy One.

Show me truth in the face of false.

Be my provision in the place of my to-do list.

Reveal my true self that is buried under lies.

Free me to follow you.


(c) 2015 Rev. Lil Smith
