“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6, NKJV).
I have always believed that logical thinking, risk analysis and dealing with life in a sensible and realistic way would guarantee success. I used to consider myself pragmatic, focusing on the processes behind any task, initiative or goal.
When you are pragmatic, you are practical. You follow the rules and expect to be rewarded. You are usually successful, but are often still searching for “the answer.” You may attend church, but a true understanding of the Bible eludes you; it stays hidden.
