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.”
