“Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words remain forever. (Matthew 24:35)
Things today are not as they were yesterday and they won't be the same tomorrow. All of life around us is in a constant state of flux or change. Even the most 'constant' processes have some degree of variation! I am so glad to know God's love is never in a state of flux! I may not always appreciate his love, thinking I have to do something to earn it, but it remains unchanging regardless of how I approach it! I may not understand how his grace can be there each and every time I stand in need of it to be extended in my life, but it is! I certainly don't know how his words have remained consistently true from generation to generation, but they are never changing and always can be relied upon. We may not understand the 'how' or 'why' behind these 'unchanging' things, but we reap the benefits from their stability!
Truth is a 'fixed thing' - it is not changeable. We can attempt to add to it, but do we really add anything of value to genuine truth? Truth is 'unchanging' - but do we ever try to mold it to fit our needs, desires, or wants? If truth is a fixed or unchangeable thing, then of what value is it trying to add to it or 'morph it' into something different? Wouldn't we have to admit we are just doing so to fit some selfish or misdirected need of our own mind or heart? We are sometimes guilty of trying to make something fit into our way of thinking rather than adjust our way of thinking to fit the truth we are resisting so aggressively! Truth was never meant to change with the times. The times were made to conform to the truth! Just sayin!
