June 18 – The Smashed Microscope

tfh sunriseRecently I read a fascinating story of a man who, through a microscope, was shown the bacteria in the polluted water which he had been drinking. He did not like to see the tiny organisms wriggling around in his water, so he angrily took a heavy club and smashed the microscope to pieces. “Silly man” we say. But wait- the Bible, God’s Word, reveals the ugliness of sin hidden in our hearts. It says, “the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.” And how do we respond? Some try to destroy its credibility or ignore its message completely. But we cannot change truth by neglecting, attacking, or refusing to believe it.. Others pretend they are too intelligent to accept the inspired Word of God, often without even examining it. But that does not change the truth, nor excuse them when they stand before their Maker someday. Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
