Prayer Thought – Convenience

I’m always put off by people who simply think they know everything; arrogance and dogmatism are not very attractive qualities.  Of course, we all hold to particular beliefs but I often wonder why we believe what we believe.  I’m left with the conclusion that sometimes our viewpoints are a matter of convenience.  See, sometimes we believe things because they are easy to swallow or because we simply want to hold a specific stance.

“Lord, open my eyes to truth.  Help me seek after truth when I don’t want to hear it.  Help me hear truth when I’m tempted to turn a deaf ear to it.  Help me accept truth and respond to it.  And Lord, help correct my beliefs which are void of truth.”
