DAILY READINGS: Deut. 12:1-32; Song of Sol. 2:8-3:5; Luke 9:37-62

The truth which is after godliness. Titus 1:1

“After” means “according to.” In other words, that which produces godliness. As important as truth and sound doctrine are, they mean nothing to us personally unless we are molded by them into godly living. To hold to orthodoxy but have a cold heart or worldly values and lifestyle is to live a giant contradiction, or in other words, hypocrisy. Someone said, “The Bible was not given to merely fill our minds or satisfy our curiosity, but to change our lives.” James 1:22 demands, “But be ye doers of the word.” —Carl Knott

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way,
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. — John Henry Sammis
