a nugget

I have found a wonderful nugget of "truth" in our United Methodist Hymnal...and to think, it's been in there since at least 1989, maybe longer! So for the past 23+ years, I've held this wonderful nugget in my hand without ever seeing it. Perhaps it was hidden until I could understand it, or needed it, or was ready to hear it. Whatever the reason...I'm so pleased to have found it

For the Spirit of Truth
(a prayer from Kenya)
From the cowardice that dares not face new truth,
from the laziness that is contented with half truth,
from the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth,
Good Lord, deliver me.        Amen

Now how's that for a powerful message in 4 lines?
by the way, it's on page 602
