DAILY READINGS: 2 Sam. 20:1-26; Jer. 4:3-31; Gal. 5:10-26

Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding. Proverbs 23:23

How do you buy truth? First of all you must recognize it as truth, as ultimate reality. Then you must pay the price to obtain it, and be willing to obey that truth. Next you make the decision to obtain it for yourself. Your life should then be formed by that truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Is that true? Is He the Son of God and the only Saviour of sinners? Are you willing to pay the price of following Him? Then receive Him as Lord and Saviour and begin to follow Him today. —Donald L. Norbie

Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved, and we should love Him too;
And trust in His redeeming blood, and seek His will to do.
—C. F. Alexander
