A few Sundays ago Pastor Ryan spoke about offences in the church which brought to light a bad habit of mine.
A tiny praxis.
An idiot-syncrasy I can’t seem to shake off.
I don’t think it’s always been ingrained in me, rather that I never dealt with it thoroughly.
a.k.a the 8th deadly sin.
Oh, the power of life and death of a relationship relies strongly on the kind of cognitive bias allowed into the relationship. I say it in such a way that implies it’s inevitable because the fact is, it is, whether or not we choose to be aware of it.
Assumption is a curse and, in my onion, due to human nature, unavoidable. But it doesn’t have to be terminal and it certainly can be controlled. It’s really a matter of whether I have the discipline to.
There’s something I’ve learned recently; Nothing is as it seems. To judge a book by its cover is to dig one’s own grave. To give in to the fundamental attribution error is really that; an error.
In the church, or anywhere else really, assuming can only get you into trouble and more than that corrode the bonds of friendship or even worse, stop them from being formed.
Which is why it is of the utmost importance I start getting off my a** and practice learning facts, not feeding off gossip.
Observations are always subject to personal interpretation but it is not an excuse to override truth.
Sorry won’t cover it later on. Trust me.
Sigh. Still a learning in progress.
Fools base their thoughts on foolish assumptions, so their conclusions will be wicked madness;
