Plumb True

I love the recent focus on “worldview”, made popular by series such as The Truth Project (from Focus on the Family).  Because through these series, we are reminded that there is only one truth.  Though our post-modern world teaches that truth is relative and may differ for each individual, the real fact is that TRUTH is a singular concept.  This is alluded to in today’s scripture.

“This is what he showed me: The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in his hand. And the LORD asked me, “What do you see, Amos?”  “A plumb line,” I replied.  Then the Lord said, “Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.  The high places of Isaac will be destroyed and the sanctuaries of Israel will be ruined; with my sword I will rise against the house of Jeroboam.””  — Amos 7:7-9

The purpose of a plumb line is to set things to a TRUE standard – and there is only one truth in this example – straight up and down.  We would not build a skyscraper on principles that deviate from true natural laws.  In the same way, there really is only God’s truth when it comes to living a righteous life.  No matter what the world may think…
