It’s a good thing to learn early that other people’s opinions do not matter unless they happen to be true. (Phyllis Bottome, 20th century British novelist and short story writer)
How important are other people’s opinions to you? Often we seem to make choices based more on what others think than on our own ideas. The key, however, is not whose opinion we accept but whether the view we’re considering is true. Truth, after all, must not be based on mere opinion; it must be founded on objective reality.
Finally . . . whatever is true, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely . . . or praiseworthy—think about such things (Philippians 4:8).
