Ep 68 - Get the Whole Story (Prov. 18:17)
Everyone carries their own perspective based on what they know and have experienced. But that perspective may be incomplete, faulty, or misguided, which shows us that information is a fickle thing. One person’s report can seem true at first, but then when we compare it to a second opinion or another source, we spot potential limitations in the first person’s knowledge; this changes our perspective, and we then draw a different conclusion. Thus, the truth is in the whole story, not just the first version we hear.
Illustration: Movie plot from “My Cousin Vinny” (1992) about charges of murder and robbery brought against Billy and Stan, and how Billy’s cousin Vinny saved them from being falsely accused of the crimes in court.
Verses: Prov. 18:17; Josh. 22:11-33
