The Valley of Opinion

“For I hear the slander of many; Fear is on every side; While they take counsel together against me, They scheme to take away my life” (Psalm 31:13). Media values “news” which is more “opinion” than real facts and truth. In point of fact, “opinion polls” consume a great deal of time and space these days. The New Testament commands: “Do not be wise in your own opinion” (Romans 12:16 quoting Proverbs 3:7). Opinions can bully people into fleeing. “The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1). Opinions can be corrected: “I thought about my ways, And turned my feet to Your testimonies. I made haste, and did not delay To keep Your commandments” (Psalm 119:59-60). The Valley of Opinion is in the Land of the Lost.
