Gospel Reading John 5:30-34
30“I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek to do not my own will but the will of him who sent me. 31“If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. 32There is another who testifies on my behalf, and I know that his testimony to me is true. 33You sent messengers to John, and he testified to the truth. 34Not that I accept such human testimony, but I say these things so that you may be saved.
Ralph Milton writes, “There are two kinds of truth. The truth we try and prove – and
fail. And the truth we try and live. We fail on that too, but God succeeds for us. That’s something we know, but can never prove. Nor should we even try.
Question for Reflection:
If we come to know the truth in living our lives, what steps will you take today that will put you on the path of truth? How can you make the pursuit or the living of truth not just some ideal but a reality in your life today?
