Don’t make your mind up to quickly!
Whether during a conversation, a meeting, a sermon (or preparing a sermon), etc., be slow to make up your mind.
First impressions and headlines are not always accurate and never fully accurate. Practice humility and listen.
Or as the old-timers used to say, “Chew on it” for a day or two.
- The ONE THING for today: A lot of damage has been done by people who thought they knew what they were doing and what they were talking about. Unless you’ve achieved omniscience and know all things, be very slow to make up your mind. Instead, be willing to listen and learn, and be guided. Perhaps there’s more to the story than you know and perhaps there are other and even better ways of getting done what needs to be done.
Acts 18:26 (NKJV)
When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.
