Captain is not the first cat of mine who discovered the direct correlation between a filled birdfeeder and the arrival of birds.
Have you ever operated under a false assumption? You are so convinced of it that you can't imagine that it would be wrong?
This is a problem that I have. Finally, I've learned to reconsider my beliefs. Today I was convinced that I had a vet appointment (not FOR me, but for one of the dogs) at 1:40. It was at 1:20. I was SURE because I wrote down 1:40. Guess what? Still wrong!
Truth is truth no matter what we think or assume or experience. It is up to examine the positions we hold against the plum line of Truth to see how they compare.
It's difficult, but in order to have a proper understanding, we must be willing to consider that maybe, just maybe, we are wrong.
