A Few Things I Know

December 31, 2013 by J. Truett Glen

Perhaps never before in the history of humankind have so many people fallen into the habit of criticizing the minutest detail in the lives of so many others without accepting that criticism in return. I suppose that the abundant information that we all have access to, on so impersonal of a level, enables us to think that we have arrived at some superior level of wisdom. In reality I am intimidated by the knowledge of the garage mechanic just as much as that of the NY stock broker. The burden of a single mother is as foreign to me as that of starving man in the desert. The socialist makes a good point and then the capitalist counters with another one. I see patterns and similarities in all these things but I am not in their shoes. There are a few things I do know though: “I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” “We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God;” “By his wounds you have been healed;” and “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” As you approach another new year of life, I would encourage you to consider the few things that you know for certain, and look to see how those things guide your thoughts, words, actions, and relationships.
