The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation


Matthew 26:60. …though many false witnesses came forward.

What motivates false witnesses? The intent seems to be to do another person harm, and somehow the desire to harm takes precedence over the facts. Reality becomes an inconvenience to be ignored like ants at a picnic or sweat during a workout. Good Friday is a haven of false testimony, as is the Internet, much political rhetoric, and more than a few gossip sessions. We are no longer shocked to find it, but let us not be so cynical as to accept it as the norm.
