Slippery Slopes

There are slippery slopes on both sides of every mountain of human opinion. Be careful.  Some people believe that slippery slopes exist only on the opposite side of the mountain from their current understanding of the facts.

When you ask God for wisdom you are not asking Him to confirm your opinion.  Your request for wisdom is an invitation for the Spirit to come and make adjustments in your thinking before you demand others to do the same.  It is in the reception of God’s wisdom and the subsequent adjustment to your thinking where humility and mercy begins to flow through you to those who hold a differing opinion.  Humility and mercy are the evidence that you have received the wisdom from above. This evidence is the only true foothold on the mountain of public opinion.
