This is an excerpt from the book 'Workship: How to Use your Work to Worship God' by Kara Martin.
I have two adult children. Jaslyn is 21, and Guy is 19. Right from the moment they were born I realised that I had to be careful in the way I thought about them. They are not my children, they are a gift from God.
God has given me stewardship over them for as long as I live. They are a beautiful and treasured gift, but I try and make sure I hold them lightly.
“concern with truth is the heart of virtuous intellectual character. It is what gives rise to intellectual virtues like reflectiveness, attentiveness, fairmindedness, intellectual carefulness and courage” (Virtuous Minds*, p13 )
Can you imagine what our world would be like if everyone accepted that ‘all truth is relative’ and that it is okay for ‘my truth’ and ‘your truth’ to be diametrically opposed? Doesn’t this idea contradict the actual definition of truth?
