Three Pursuits Better Than Being Right
There are some things that are more important than being right, as this article explains.

“God has revealed himself as Triune. He is both one and three. Yet many hear that statement as contradictory. Obviously, in mathematics 1 does not equal 3. And it would be a contradiction if God was one and three in the same way. But he is not.”

Let us not be those who are known digitally but not locally. —Isaac Adams
