To take a stand
Taking a stand sounds simple, but it requires an extraordinary amount of courage.
If we develop an opinion born from critical thinking, but it goes contrary to popular opinion, do we take a stand?
When we are subjected to peer pressure, do we take a stand?
When it is more convenient to confirm our biases than to re-examine our beliefs, do we take a stand?
In a way, the sins of Solomon seems greater than that of a common man; for his wisdom should have let him know better.
Wisdom without action turns into hypocrisy.
Feigned wisdom and tentative actions turn into BS and inauthenticity.
Wisdom with courageous action leads to virtue. Hopefully, we can be better in taking a stand.
