Try hard enough and you can find someone to tell you what you want to hear.

We can rationalize any behavior.

We can find someone that will agree with our opinion.

The advent of social media has made all of this even easier.

When you seek advice, don’t just find people that will tell you what you want to hear.

Find the people that will tell you what you need to hear.

Then you will find wisdom.

Then you will become wise.

Author:

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
