The human body comprises 12 distinct systems, and their functions reflect their names: cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, immune, integumentary, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal and urinary.

Thought Adjuster: “In God’s creation, Truth, Beauty, and Goodness go in a trio, the reason being that they are unsustainable on their own, just as a sound physical body requires the smooth running of all its operative systems and backup systems.

Truth is either beautiful or ugly, depending on its tenor in goodness or the lack thereof. Truth is evidential—not merely circumstantial. Often, damaging evidence is concealed behind toxic smokescreens of lies and deception.

Twisted truths display an ugly deformity. Their masterminds are self-conflicted, which robs them of peace of mind and heart. Straight shooters abide ‘by the truth and nothing but the truth.’ These free spirits are immune to emotional blackmail.  

Truth, Beauty, and Goodness are the supporting pillars of genuine happiness. Those who operate under their umbrella exude a commanding presence. Their approach is forthright, in stark contrast with the shifty eye contact of liars.  

Jesus’ truth was liberating because it was beautifully uplifting. The saving grace of truth lies within its appeal, leading its uncompromising adepts to perform great and beautiful works that stand out on their substantial merit in a world riddled with iniquity.  

It is its underlying motive that renders truth beautiful or despicable. Truthful words can be utterly cruel when weaponized to drive venomous arrows into their victims’ tender hearts.  

Divine truth is all-loving. Because of His all-inclusive love, the Father forever manifests beauty through the impeccable command of His spoken word. “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” [Genesis 1:31]”
