Years ago, I dated this guy and his father was a bishop. Whenever he had issues he never wanted to go to this father for advice. I often wondered why but I never asked him. One day I said to him, “Why don’t you ever ask your father for advice? I feel like he would be the best person to get advice from because he’s a bishop, he knows the bible, etc.”
He looked at me and said, “That is exactly why I don’t ask him. He’s going to give me advice from the bible and I don’t always want to hear that. Sometimes I need to hear worldly advice and him talking to me from experience.” I completely understood what he meant. How often has this happened to you? I know we can find almost all answers to our issues in the bible but not everyone believes in the bible. Quite frankly, that isn’t what we always want to hear.
