Five Minute Friday: Truth

Write for 5 minutes flat. Link up your post on LisajoBaker.com.
This week's theme: Truth


What's the truth? Am I suppose to know everything at this point in my life?

No. We continue learning after college, after classrooms and study groups. After the ideas and biases we hear from professors and colleagues, associates and enemies.

We heard so many things these days. So much talk about what we should know and believe. We take everything we heard and read and process the facts, looking for the truth. We personify ourselves to the liking of the people we connect with, the people we want to be identified as.

Why do we think that what we believe is truth? It's what we make of it. It's how we process things. In the end, the decision is personal.

We can build our towers with everything that we learned as a child, and in an instant, our beliefs can be destroyed. But it is when this truth last throughout lifetimes. This is where we find the truth of mankind. What is constant? What is steadfast? What is concrete?
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
