“Doubt is not always a sign that a man is wrong; it may be a sign that he is thinking.” ― Oswald Chambers
I love this quote. Doubts can be a lack of faith or a sign that courage is in short supply. However, sometimes doubts are just a sign that you are mulling things over in your head and considering your options.
“Be merciful to those who doubt” Jude 1:22 (NIV)
Doubt is one area that we all struggle with at times. Doubt seems to be part of faith though. Paul Tillich once said, “Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.” I think Tillich is right. If we never have any doubts, then maybe we are not being stretched in our faith in any ways.
