Is it true?
Are we “useless, unshepherded sheep, taking turns pretending to be shepherd”? Am I so easily swayed by my fellows? Can our culture’s lack of Absolute Truth so easily change my convictions from “‘I believe’ to ‘One does think’*”?
Protect my heart from their lies, Truthful One. Give me confidence in the never changing verity of Your Word. Give me the courage to stand by Your Truth come what may.
* I read this phrase in the C.S. Lewis book Surprised by Joy.
