There are “Tellers” (a common name for storytellers) and there are “Tellers.” Some storytellers are simply entertainers. If you know me you know I am a teller, but I have always aspired, not primarily to entertain, but to be a faithful teller of the truth. The telling I do and the telling I love is Truth Telling. It is telling the truth of scripture. That is the only truth that sets people free. Anyway, in one form or another today I’m working on truth-telling, preparing for camp messages, writing sermons, podcasting true stories, reading and studying truth, witnessing, just planting seeds of truth. Truth-Telling.
An additional thought came to my heart this morning: “Those who talk a lot are likely to sin, but those who control their tongues are wise.” (Prov. 10:19)
Prayer to God: “Help me, Lord not to speak when I should be silent and not to be silent when I should speak. Help me to discern the difference.”
And when I tell… let it be Big T Truth.
