Advice Without Understanding Is a Form of Rejection

December 19, 2012

“Lost people need direction. Blind people need enlightening. Stubborn people need prodding. Clear instruction on how to handle life’s problems is obviously necessary. But people are not only lost, blind, and stubborn; they are also scared. And scared people need patient, accepting understanding. Christians must grasp the apparently elusive truth that advice without understanding is not helpful. It is in fact a form of rejection.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Encouragement, Page 106

Question for Reflection:
Why do you think advice without understanding is a form of rejection?
