What Compass Guides Your Thinking ? - Syndication Express

Posted by Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield

In today's world we are surrounded by more information, more often
than any other time in history. The set of thinking skills we use to
determine what is true or useful is called discernment. This set of
thinking skills is more important in regards to our faith than any other
part of our lives. Consider what the Bible says at Leviticus 10:10” “
And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between
unclean and clean;” (KJV) So obviously if the Bible addresses it
directly it is very important. Even as adults we can fall subject to
what is called peer pressure. Our actions are sometimes ruled by our
need to be popular. They of course should be guided by God's word
instead. Look at what is said in Proverbs 21:2. “Every way of a man is
right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.”(KJV)
Everybody wants to feel independent, to be an original. But are these
desires the best way to grow our faith ? Not in a vacuum they are not.

Navigators at sea always take care to consider error and deviation.
Magnetic deviation has to do with the earth's magnetic field being
different in different parts of the world. Error on the other hand has
to do with every compass being different. In much the same way when we
looking to guide our thinking and decisions, we need to make sure that
the information we are using is accurate. We also need to make sure we
are using the right information to get us where we want to go. Without
God's word, and his leading through the Holy Spirit we lack a vital
perspective in our decision making.
