At Pinnacle Forum, we have a vision for small groups who hold one another accountable and even have the courage to point out "blind spots."
Stating the obvious, we don’t see blind spots. That’s why they’re called blind spots. So, rather than being defensive when someone points something out, let’s listen to advice and accept instruction – – that in the end we can be wise (Proverbs 19:20).
Proverbs 17:10 – encourages that, "A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool." That is, a man of understanding doesn’t defensively deny blind spots when they come his way. He allows them to shape his character.
It is a brave man or woman who has the courage to ask a good friend, "Would you help me identify my blind spots?"
