May 6, Today’s thought – Face the Music

March 29-30  YP cabin trip 002

Good Morning

Many years ago a man conned his way into an orchestra although he could not play a note. He would hold his flute against his lips, pretend to play but not make a sound. Then one day the leader requested a solo from each musician. The man was panic stricken. On the day of his solo performance, he took poison and killed himself. The explanation of his suicide led to a phrase that found its way into the English language: “He refused to face the music.”

Face the music! Some of us have buried a marriage, parts of a conscience, and even parts of our faith—all because we won’t face the music…we won’t tell the truth. Ask yourself, am I honest in my dealings? Am I a trustworthy student? An honest taxpayer? Do you tell the truth—always?

Proverbs says, “The Lord hates a lying tongue.” (12:19)

Just tell the truth.

Max Lucado from Just Like Jesus

Seek truth . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

P.S. I’ll be in Redding until Saturday, with only internet access at Starbucks/or____. Posts maybe less frequent.

  1. Oh what a fascinating post. What a great story. Yes much pain can come from not facing the music. The music can be very hard to face at times though. 🙂

    • True music can be hard, but with God holding our hands we can have strength enough.
