Shownotes

Bill Scott shares a deeply intimate story of how he erred in his thinking, and allowed his pride, not to mention a deep hurt not fully processed, to cause him to stray from what he knew was the right way to walk.

Bill reveals the exact moment he chose to forsake his conscience and give in to a deceptive mindset. His skewed rationale prevented him from heeding the sound counsel he received to change direction and avoid certain consequences.

The beauty of Bill's story is not just one of restoration but also how you can offer hope and comfort to others who are hurting.

We're grateful for Bill being willing to share his story, and we do so in hopes our listeners will perhaps be swayed in the right direction when they are on the edge of a slippery slope of compromise. With loving support and a commitment to make things right, restoration can be the outcome.

Ultimately, the comfort we seek in the wrong things is what we truly seek in Christ - and following Him will give us the true joy and the healing we seek.
