Proverbs 1:7: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?
I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

I'm convinced my friend is right. He says, "People don't want counsel; they want confirmation." The longer I'm around and the more I counsel people, the more I believe the above statement is accurate. People generally want someone to agree with what they already think. They want someone to confirm their decision(s). They want people to tell them what they want to hear. And they virtually never listen to the bible when it disagrees with their plan or view. I am amazed by the number of folks who fake interest in biblical counsel when they are going to do what they want anyway! Sadly, this is common among those who are alledgedly mature in the faith.
