Without the truth, plan on losing life's battles ...
This behavior is common in our own time, especially in the church regarding how we respond to the spiritual war being waged in this world.
"Don't judge me!" we shout to anyone who tries to step into our lives to tell us the truth about ourselves. Soon, we've conditioned others to tell us only what we want to hear, rather than what we need to hear. The result is that we are ill-equipped with the truth we need to make right decisions, which leads to losing important spiritual battles.
Are you allowing people to speak the truth to you? Or do you listen only to yourself?
"Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life," Proverbs 19:20.
