Listen to Your Gut (CL)
Our gut instincts are notoriously untrustworthy, especially when compared with the trustworthiness of God’s Word. Yet sometimes your gut makes you wonder whether a widely held understanding or a possible interpretation of some portion of God’s Word is correct. When something doesn’t seem quite right, go ahead and raise questions—humbly!—even when you’re questioning a dominant point of view. Fact is, what we call our “gut reaction” can sometimes be the Holy Spirit trying to cause us to pause, listen, look and see something different.
