Daily Nugget

    Monday, July 2nd, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

Lincoln was trying to make a point. His hearer was unconvinced and stubborn, so Lincoln tried another tack. He said to the disputer, “Well, let’s see now. How many legs does a cow have?” The disgusted reply came back, “Four, of course.” Lincoln agreed, “That’s right. Now, suppose you call the cow’s tail a leg; how many legs would the cow have?” The opponent replied confidently, 

“Why, five, of course.” Lincoln came back, “Now that’s where you’re wrong. Calling a cow’s tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg!”

The trouble today is too many people are drinking the Kool-Aid and shouting, “Five!”  The way to see the lie is to look to the truth. Jesus tells us in John 8:31-32, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

God, help us to keep our eyes on the truth so we know when we hear a lie. Amen.
