Buy Truth

Many seek to act as though truth doesn't exist or that if it does you can't know it. But that is contrary to what the Scriptures, the living Word of God says. Not only does truth exists; truth is worth fighting for and it comes at a price.

Proverbs tells us that truth has value. Proverbs 23:23 says, "Buy truth, and do not sell it, get wisdom and instruction and understanding." Its value is like the treasure hidden in the field that the man found and sold all he had to buy the field that contained the treasure (Matt. 13:44).

Truth is of such value that we should be willing to forsake all in order to have it. The psalmist rightly portrays this attitude in Psalm 119:72 - The law of Thy mouth is better to me Than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

What is it worth to you? What would you pay for truth?
