Truth is painful.
Plato's image of the cave - the light is painful, it blinds. Until the eyes adjust.
Truth sets us free - but freedom itself is fearful.
The command repeated most often in the Bible: do not be afraid.
The way is narrow that leads to life.
The good surgeon cuts in order to heal, not in order to demonstrate prowess with a knife.
O Lord, prosper the work of my hands.
