“How comes it that men are almost always sure to arrive at the conclusions reached by their own party?” _Frederick W. Robertson, Classic Sermons on The Will of God
- I added this quotation today not because I liked it but because it convicted me. I have the tendency to gravitate to those that confirm what I believe. For example, if I happen upon a news program that does not agree with my point of view I almost always go to another program. However, I have learned that “my side” and the “wrong side” are never completely right and never completely wrong; we can learn from all people and the “point” in their point of view can prod us to reflect and reexamine our own views.
- In the final analysis, there is only one absolutely safe source of truth to build your life upon and that is God’s word. That is why Bible reading and study must be one of few absolutely nonnegotiables of your daily life.
