“Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he’ll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he’ll have to touch it just to make sure.” -Murphy’s Law
I remember in college getting into an argument with someone over the theory of absolute TRUTH. “We can all be wrong”, I said… “but we can’t all be right.” “Yes we can”, the other student insisted. “All truth is relative and a matter of perspective. It’s how YOU see things that matters.” While I understand what the other student was saying, I fail to see the logic that perspective defines truth. In the words of Dr. Hertel, “If I get on a plane bound for Los Angeles, but I believe I’m going to New York, what I believe is irrelevant. At the end of the day, I’m in the wrong place.” In short, we can all be wrong, but we can’t make L.A. New York.
We typically make good decisions with good information. When we’re impulsive or uninformed we usually end up doing things we later regret, and when we act in ignorance or on bad information, we typically make a mess of things. That’s why intentional prayer, petition, trust, and obedience are the foundation of the Christian life. When we build our lives on the teachings of Christ, we’ll end up a lot closer to the Kingdom life God intends for His Children.
