Be right. (Part II)

May 18, 2012

The first Be Right post was on the idea that you can believe in anything as long as you’re sincere; such that the sincerity automatically validates what you’re believing in.

Bad idea number two: “Just follow your heart.” And similarly, “You just need to believe in yourself!” This could sound like a good sentiment without this wise verse in Jeremiah: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) It rings true. You don’t know yourself. I don’t know myself. Therefore we shouldn’t be trusting ourselves to guide us on our way.
