Opinions

"A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions." (Proverbs 18:2, NIV)

Everybody has an opinion about just about everything. Our opinions are usually based on our own experiences and assumptions. Sometimes those opinions grow in our minds to the weight of scripture. Then, whether we believe it or not, evidence to the contrary challenges our opinions, and we either learn how humble we are or how stubborn.

People in Jesus' day had opinions about paying taxes. Jesus challenged them. They had opinions about resurrection. Jesus challenged them. Jesus never had trouble questioning a mistaken idea. Usually those challenged went away in amazement.

How willing are we to challenge our own opinions? Are we humble or arrogant?

Jesus calls us to overcome the fear of being wrong, to know the truth which sets us free. He challenges us to be childlike, lifelong learners constantly experiencing the joy of discovering the width and length, the depth and height of His love which transcends knowledge.

Dear God, I am filled with data. Help me to discern what is true. Deliver me from making assumptions and conclusions based on ignorance. Lord, give me the courage to challenge wrong thinking in myself first. In Jesus' name. Amen.
- PAUL THOMAS, Fountain Valley, California
