Hook: Why is truth so crucial to healthy interactions?
Book: At six in the morning, the religious leaders took Jesus to the politicians for execution. His conversation with Pilate centered on truth, which only vindicated Him. These facts were obvious to Pilate, “I find no basis for a charge against Him.” Truth is a divider of people. The religious leaders were more concerned about ceremonial cleanliness than telling the truth, while the “defiled” politician, Pilate, sought the facts. No wonder Jesus stated that everyone on the side of truth listens to Him.
Took: What is required of someone who wants to be on the side of truth? How does truth cleanse relationships?
