WE WERE having our garage rebuilt and during the time when clearing out, we found what we thought was a small cannon ball.
A few days later I was talking to the builder about it, and he advised me it was a drain ball.
I had to ask what a drain ball was used for.
I was told this heavy ball, would have been used to roll down drains to ensure all the joints on the pipes were clear of sand and cement and also smooth, to allow the water and sewerage to drain away freely.
It was good to know the truth about this and learn some facts about a drain ball, although I was a little disappointed, thinking what I thought was a cannon ball may have been linked to the nearby historic Napoleonic fort at Berry Head.
Discovering truth brings us into contact with reality and reveals the importance of accuracy.
The bible has much to say about truth.
David the Psalmist said of God: "Behold, You desire truth in the inner being..." (Psalm 51:6) David went on to proclaim: "Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; .. (Psalm 86:11).
Whatever decision, circumstance or difficulty you may be experiencing this week, God's Word of truth can help and guide you.
The Bible tells us about the Good News of God's plan and purpose for our lives.
Not only is God's Word true, but He is The Truth.
In John's gospel, Jesus said to those who believed Him: "... you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32).
