Faith walk: Truth always prevails

Posted

My doorbell was ringing. When I opened the door, my new neighbor was standing there. I did not know her but she introduced herself and asked, “Are you the Pastor?” I answered, “Yes, I am.”

I had just become the Pastor of a nearby church and had only been in the neighborhood a few days.

The lady said that she was sorry to meet me under the condition that brought her to my house, but she had come to tell me about my son. She proceeded to tell me that my son was playing in her backyard and when she asked him to leave, he was verbally abusive to her.

I said, “That doesn’t sound like something my son would do.” I assured her that I would talk with him about her report and that she would quickly receive an apology once I spoke to him.

When I found my son, and told him what the lady had told me, he said, “Daddy, I did not do that!” After talking with him for a few minutes, I decided to take him across the street to see the woman. I believed my ten-year-old son, but I had an adult telling me that she had personally experienced what she reported.

We crossed the street and rang the woman’s doorbell. When she answered, I said that I had brought my son to speak to her. When she saw him she asked, “Is he your only son?” I said, “Yes, he is.” Then she told me that Billy was not the boy who had spoken abusively to her. After some discussion, we realized another boy had given her Billy’s name when she confronted him.

Things are not always as they seem to be. Sometimes you may think you really know something that is not true. Fake news is the news today. The answer to deception is truth!

Face the truth in your life with God’s Word in your heart. When you do, you will find the Truth always ultimately wins. False accusations, lies, and deception will fall when confronted by truth.
