There’s Always More to the Story…Thought for the day….

How often do we skim down our newsfeed and just catch the headlines or highlights? I do it most of the time. If it catches my eye, I might go ahead and read the whole story or article, but otherwise it’s on to the next item. Here’s the problem with that. Too often, the headline is misleading. And once it has entered your mind, it’s there. So unless you make the effort to read the rest of the story, whatever you have in your mind may or may not be correct. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen someone post that Jesus said to let he who is without sin cast the first stone….mainly because they want to deflect attention away from their sin. Problem is, they have failed to read the rest. If they had read just a little more they would have seen that Jesus also told the woman to go and sin no more. My point is…you can’t just skim the bible, reading only the headlines or highlights, and know the whole story. You have to read it all. Because assuming you know it could cost you your life if you’re wrong.
