Blinding Bias

Hook: How does a person act when his mind is already made up about something?

Book: The religious leaders were infuriated at the failure of the guards to arrest Jesus. They ridiculed the soldiers who made positive comments about His teaching and even put down one of their own, Nicodemus, when he spoke up. Bias blinds people to the facts so much that they are willing to abuse both their enemies and friends. Lust for power or position makes choices take on a selfish distortion.

Took: What tempts you to be blind with bias at times? How is this blindness hurting a relationship in your life?
