Davidisms - Listen to the Other Side Before You Make Up Your Mind!

It’s a common phrase among journalists: “Beware of the half-truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.”

Scripture says it this way: “The one who states his case first seems right - until the cross-examination begins” (Prov. 18:17).

There are in fact two sides to every story. We must remember to listen to both sides before forming an opinion. Because human nature inclines us to believe the first side of the story that we hear.

When we study both sides of a story - and seek God’s divine discernment - the truth will be revealed. It will become clear. It’s why disciples of Jesus must posture themselves as learners. Not judges.

Don’t believe something just because someone says so! Or the Internet says so. Or the news says so. Or social media says so. Every view is most likely skewed.

Be a true disciple of Jesus. A learner seeking to discern the truth.

And this most often happens by listening to the other side before making up your mind.
