Jesus reminds us that Christian discipleship demands faithfulness to principles unrecognized and unaccepted by the world; it calls for an uncompromising conviction for the truth deemed unpalatable by secular society and discarded by the “morally enlightened.” Living as a Chrisitan necessarily means experiencing tension, confrontation, and division.
Love of Truth
There is something irresistible about the truth. You might try to bury it; that will not, however, bring satisfaction and serenity but only an irritating and persistent urge to seek it all the more. Although it is often mistakenly thought that an end can be brought to this desire by acquiring material objects, the heart cannot long be fooled, the depth of Eternal Beauty continues to draw you.
