What are you willing to know?

As a pastor I have occasionally said, "Wow.  There are just some things I do not want to know."Circle of truth Just when I think I have heard it all, I get blown away by what someone says.

Rod Dreher, columnist for the Dallas Morning News wrote a fascinating op-ed piece for the February 9 USA Today called How Much "Truth" is Too Much?

Here's Jesus in John chapter 8…

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him,  “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (English Standard Version)

Is there something you need to know about yourself that you never have explored?  Or about others perhaps?  If you are abiding in the words of Jesus, are you willing to know the truth about what you need to know? And conversely, are you willing to let go of that what you need to let go?
