(Proverbs 23:23 KJV) Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
I am beginning, again, Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations. I hope to make it through this time. In the first few chapters he talks about the basis of all wealth is not gold and silver but the work of people. It is even work that produces gold. With that thought in mind, it is our labor that produces truth.
Just as a farmer sows and reaps, we seek the “truth” (571). It is important to seek in the right places. Even a school child knows not to plant seed in the middle of a concrete slab. You won’t find truth watching the current sit-com nor reading the latest novel. Spend some of your intellectual labor where the truth will grow.
So? Is your Bible dusty? Have you read Pilgrim’s Progress? Are you reaping a harvest of righteousness?
