Do you really know it all?

“Arrogant know-it-alls stir up discord, but wise men and women listen to each other’s counsel.” Proverbs 13:10

feelBores—that’s what they are! The arrogant know-it-alls—or more specifically, the ones who think they know it all.

In one of the episodes of The Good Wife, one of the judges was sensitive to the way lawyer’s argued their case. The lawyers discovered that when they started a sentence with, “In my opinion …” they had a better working relationship with the judge.

A few months ago, I read a ranting statement in the My View section of our local newspaper. The writer responded to a previously-printed article by saying how the writer’s opinion gave him something funny to laugh at. His use of sarcasm drove me to my computer to give my view: sarcasm is a form of hatred!

In my opinion, no one deserves to be laughed at for exercising the right to freedom of speech. “My View” published my opinion the following week and I hope the arrogant know-it-all read it. In my opinion, he needed my counsel.

Lord, help us become a know-it-all in matters of justice and fairness. Amen.
