Foundation Truth, Number 14 (Summer 2006) | Timeless Truths Publications
Holy Spirit

Dear Reader

In the “About Us” section we write:

Foundation Truth is meant to be a family publication, with sections of particular interest to different members of the family, but we look to the Lord for direction on what to include, and the structure may vary from issue to issue.

This was the vision we had when we started the magazine. One of us had a burden for the young men’s section, one for the women’s, and another for the young women’s section. Over the past few issues, however, we have noticed the Lord withdrawing the burden for the sections, while laying heavier on our hearts the need to send spiritual food out to any who are hungry for it, and send it more often than we have been.

We have asked the Lord to help us adjust to what He is doing, and be straightforward with you, dear reader, as well.

You will notice that there are no articles specifically addressed to young men in this issue. Although there are articles of particular interest to women and young women, the emphasis is shifting. We are finding that the Lord no longer means for us to be attempting to address the family as a whole, but to put out whatever He inspires us to put out in each issue.

We feel it is important to tell you this, and if you no longer wish to receive Foundation Truth, please let us know.

The magazine remains free to any who ask, but because of the change in focus, we feel the need to bring this to your attention so that the Lord’s money is not wasted in mailing to those who do not read it.

“For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”* (Matthew 20:1-16)

We have found it a great privilege to be laborers in the vineyard for at least some of “the burden and heat of the day,” and find it far better than to “stand ye here all the day idle.” The Lord is very good indeed!

Love and prayers,
