Sometimes, it is scary to be right
In a way, ignorance is indeed bliss. The readings of the past days point to the burden of insight that compels a person to act responsibly.
What is scarier is when our personal (but reasonable conclusion) of what is right goes against the norms of society or an organization. As social creatures, it is such a risk to take a stand separate from our peers.
It is scary to be right. It takes courage to transform insight into actions that are right.
Luke 12:54-59. “Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?”
