Truth and existence (Luke 6:46-49)

God has a deep devotion to truth....that's almost an understatement. Truth is the standard that life is created through. You can't build a building if you have the wrong instructions. If it's a lie, a distortion of the correct instructions, how can it stand or be built to last. Jesus demonstrates this concept through a parable in Luke 6:46-49. Its interesting how God's deep ideas, and foundational concepts are right in front of our eyes! The reason of everything existing is found in a simple parable of a house built on a firm foundation. This is specifically talking about "moral" foundation of God's word but notice the parable relates to the physical world to parallel the point to make it real to His audience. God shares that He is truth and with His truth the structure will stand! God connects the physics with morality. They're connected! That right there blows minds. The truth that God creates lasts forever. Lies, distortions of truth, kill, destroy and draw us further from our life who is God. -Matthew
