Buy the Truth and Sell it Not

Proverbs 23:23 (KJV)

Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction,

and understanding.”

The Lord Jesus Christ, most gracious Saviour, suffering servant, who shed his blood on the cross, counsels us to hear and be wise, and is ready to guide our hearts in his truth.  Here we have an earnest call to our heart, that it be guided, indeed, that our steps be guided along his narrow way.  Buy the truth, and sell it not; be willing to part with any thing for it.  Do not part with the truth for any worldly advantage, status, popularity, riches, pleasures, or indeed any thing of this world.  It is all our heart, that the great almighty sovereign God requires.  We must not think to divide our heart between God and the world; He will have all or none.

All for His glory.

Earnestly, daily, we need to press on, dying to self, all the while looking to the truth of God’s precious word, and walk in it, with a heart of thanks and praise to an almighty God, and His Son, Jesus Christ, who alone is worthy of all honor and glory.
