Today was the final day in a 40 day long bible plan that I have been doing with a good friend. There was a passage that really hit me. Along with some words in the devotional. These words were put before me today for a reason, I know that.
“Surround me with wise godly friends and mentors who are committed to give me truth with grace.” This is EXACTLY what I need. The scripture said that victory depends on having many advisors. We do not always know what is best and what is right. So, then we have to be willing to listen to others and not constantly shoot down their thoughts and ideas for helping.
I don’t believe that I am the only one who can benefit from these words. The day to day struggles of life right now. The absolutes, the if your right I am wrong or vice versa.
When did it become an all or nothing? When did we become so perfect that we were unwilling to see that someone else may think, do or believe differently? Instead of being open to learning from others we shut them down and tell them they are misunderstanding. Different does not have to be mutually exclusive with wrong. However, putting up blinders and believeing your way is the only way…now that, that will lead you down a dangerous path.
