Lazaroo – Thursday, July 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with eyes wide open:

“He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message…”
(Titus 1:9)

There’s only one message that’s trustworthy, Jesus.

Yours.

Every other message –

no matter how sincere
no matter how honest the messenger
no matter how verifiable the facts

is potentially flawed.

People can be sincerely wrong.
Honest people make mistakes.

Facts are only as good as the fact-finder.
Facts tempt us to draw conclusions

which can be undone by the discovery
of a new fact.

We human beings are so flawed

so blinded by our own

dreams
perspectives
prejudices
preferences
personalities
beliefs
emotions
incomplete education
cultural biases
faulty reasoning

that all we can claim
is some percentage of probability that we’re right –

a percentage we’ve probably miscalculated
because we can’t accurately weigh
or even identify
all factors.

When I put total trust in a human being

I’m merely engaging in wishful thinking, aren’t I?

Only You, LORD.

Only You.
