When Jesus is confronted by the man with the spirit of an unclean demon, we see the trickery of half-truth. He appears to know who Jesus is, yet his intentions are not of God.
Sometimes we seem to know something, yet on further reflection we come to see that it doesn’t reflect a relationship with Jesus. When I encounter such half-truths, may I have the courage to resist the lie.
Gracious God, purify my mind and heart. May my sight be keen as I seek to see the Truth and to serve it.
