“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to,” Bilbo Baggins warned his nephew in Lord of the Rings. And indeed it is. There are traps set around our lives that, if we are not careful, will snare us. What looks delicious and pleasing to the eye just might do you harm. So test everything against absolute truth and if it comes up short, flee from it.
And if you do not know where to find absolute truth, contact me. I know exactly where it is. Walk safely.
John tells us in Revelation that God will wipe away every tear in the new heaven and the new earth. I have always wondered if that will be necessary because when we see the things of God, we will see how foolish our lives had been in searching for the gold and silver of this life instead of what was truly important. It is never too late to change course.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
"To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'" John 8:31-32
