To make good decision, we need solid facts. People are bombarded with information. Internet websites, television, radio and other mass media present a seemingly unending array of ideas. Many people are also flooded with e-mails, text messages and reports from well- meaning friends and acquaintances.
We need to be highly selective and to choose carefully what information we will read. Poor quality information will lead to poor decisions. Never underestimate the powerful effect that misleading information can have on your mind and heart.
If we do not cultivate this ability, we will be far more vulnerable and our thinking will be distorted. Since the deliberate spreading of wrong information and the distorting of facts are common nowadays, we have good reason to be cautious and yo evaluate carefully what we hear or read in order to reach accurate conclusion.
