A Parable for the Hour: jumbled thoughts on reading Luke 8 for morning devotions, Jan. 31,2020

Truth revealed or
Truth concealed?
Heart is hear with a ✝.

The shape of the cross
His story across history.
We might ask, like Pilate,
What is Truth?

The world is scorched and barren
and thirsting for truth to fall as dew
on the parched ground.
The seeds need truth to
blossom and grow into fruit.

But the seeds have fallen among the thistles,
and truth is concealed
by the thorns and in the shadows
what passes  for truth has congealed
into a mass of lies.
Is a deal with the devil
worth the compromise?

Fruit without a ✝
is easily turned into ruin.

Stand is sand
without a ✝.

Here is Luke’s Parable of the Sower.

    • Thank you! It was kind of an accident. I haven’t yet figured out how to change fonts in wordpress, and all the T’s that I could find had little hooks on the bottom. Didn’t look like crosses at all! So I went with the special character (I have very limited html skills!) :-)

    • Thank you so much. I really am very grateful that you think I’m worthy of this. Can you see a BUT coming here? You put it so politely– I’d rather not follow through… Mostly because of the time element; I can barely get my own posts written…. But thank you.
