|These are not the people in my story|
I was amazed at the ease in which people pontificated about the yet unelected pope. When asked followup questions, they spoke into the roving mike with ease and confidence.
But they were deluded. They spoke glibly with no understanding. There was no new pope--yet.
I hate to admit ignorance. I'm sure they did too. Or perhaps, they didn't even know they were ignorant!
Whatever the cause, their actions challenged me to take another look at myself.
Is it more important to make a good impression or to speak the truth? Is it more important to take another person's opinion as valid or do the hard work of digging for the facts?

Would you be willing to search the scriptures while asking the Author of Truth to inform, instruct and give you wisdom?
What other other sources might you need to research?
What action will you take?
