Daniel 5:25  And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.Daniel 5:26  This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
Dan 5:27  TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Dan 5:28  PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, . . .

“Although we may condemn falsehood and champion truth, many of us are not beyond stretching the truth a bit when circumstances appear to warrant it.   It is after all very easy to rationalize and to justify a white lie. On the other hand, some things are so repulsive and disgusting that we instinctively avoid them. We feel revolted by the very thought of coming into contact with something grossly polluted, and no amount of cajoling from anyone would hep us overcome this revulsion.

“True love of truth requires that we not only avoid evil, but that we despise it.  Those who love God should despise evil, says David the Psalmist in Psalms 97:10  “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” King David goes one step further.  The hatred of falsehood and evil should be so intense and profound that the very though to them is abhorrent; we should instinctively reject them in the same manner that we shun something so foul that it contaminates anyone who touches it.

“We may think that we possess true love of truth, but the litmus test is how much we despise falsehood. Unless falsehood automatically repels us, we have not yet achieved true love of Truth.”

Today I shall . . .try to intensify my dislike for anything false, to the point that lying and deceit become physical impossibles for me.

GROWING EACH DAY, by Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.


     “He who is guilty of wrong is the first to suspect wrong. By condemning another he is trying to conceal or excuse the evil of his own heart.   It was through sin that men gained the knowledge of evil; no sooner had the first pair sinned than they began to accuse each other and this is what human nature will inevitably do when uncontrolled by the grace of Christ.”  Ellen G. White, Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, p. 126
