Proverbs 25:2 When we put in the work to discover truth, we are empowered and liberated.
The discovery of truth liberates and empowers people! When someone tells you their version of the "truth", you only know what they "know". However, when you pursue truth and find it, no one can take it from you. A lazy person will not search diligently and he robs himself of wisdom, joy, and liberty. Now you know why evil people easily deceive and dominate many.
