 I find the verses about Jesus that we are going to look at today to be quite neat. In them we  find people that didn't like Jesus and wanted to trap him still giving Him a complement.

   Please read it with me....

  "Then the Pharisees went and plotten together how they might trap Him in what He said. And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any. Tell us then, what do you think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?" But Jesus perceieved their malice, and said, "Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? Show me the coin used for the poll-tax." And they brought Him a denarius. And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" They said to HIm, "Caeser's." Then He said to them, "Then render to Caeser the things that are Caeser's; and to God the things that are God's" And hearing this, they were amazed and leaving HIm, they went away." Matthew 22:15-22 

Truth is something that is despearately needed in our world and it is something that Jesus brings. I think it is pretty cool that the Pharisees recognized it even though they weren't willing to accept it.

In my goal of walking like Jesus I need to love and speak truth. I think I will be able to do that best if I know God's word to the best of my ability. I hope and pray that I will always be able to courageously tell the truth!

Here are some more neat verses about Jesus and Truth:

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.

John 1:14
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
