Thought for the week: We appreciated Brad McKinnon’s presentation on Information Literacy in chapel last Wednesday. In the spirit of 1 John 4:1, he reminded us to consider the source of new information. We’re not paranoid, but we try to be practical. We don’t close our minds to any truth, but we know that what some promote as truth isn’t. Some folks are happy to tell you only what you want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3-5). Some folks are just as happy to pretend to hear only what agrees with them. We love truth. We want to use the wisdom God gives (Proverbs 9:10), while asking Him to give even more (James 1:5).
