Voice of the Day: the Truth is a Trap

crossToday’s voice of the day is from Soren Kierkegaard:

The truth is a trap: you cannot get it without it getting you; you cannot get the truth by capturing it, only by its capturing you. — Soren Kierkegaard

I need to be reminded of this great reversal more often. All too often we make ourselves the agents of our own salvation, hurriedly rushing after an elusive prize. All we really need to do is wait patiently in the means of grace for Jesus Christ, the way, the truth, and the life, to capture us.
