The bumper sticker caught my eye. It said, “Don’t Believe Everything You Think.”
If it’s unwise to believe everything we hear, isn’t it also unwise to believe everything we think?
‘There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs 14:12).
Our thinking is shaped by our upbringing, peers, the media, and our own desires and prejudices.
Initially, Peter’s audience thought Jesus was an imposter. Many changed their minds when convinced by the evidence (Acts 2).
It is humbling, but good, to admit, “I was wrong about that.”
God’s word is the standard for what to believe (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We can’t afford to assume we’re right if we’re wrong.
That’s why we mustn’t believe everything we think.
