Reference text: John 20:1-2, 11-18
John 20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.
For many interviews, applicants practically rehearse specific genre it answers for particular questions and are so convinced that those will grant them results. These answers come from a place of well thought out reasoning and for them, it is plausible: whether as an excuse or a justification for choice. So if for the same question, I give the same answers hinged around the same pivot on three separate occasions, that ought to tell others that I am convinced about the veracity of that response.
This was the story of Mary Magdalene such that from the very start, the reasons for her tears were set: ‘they have taken my Lord and I don’t know where they have put him’. That was her truth. Like her, sometimes we are so convinced that we have a reason for our actions and run with it. The only problem is that reason may actually be only ‘our truth’ and not ‘the truth’. In other words, our perception of a matter may be very different from the real situation on the ground.
On this grounds sweetheart,
don’t let what you ‘think’ you know, stand in the way of realising what you don’t know. Don’t allow your truth be an obstacle to finding out ‘The truth’ as Mary eventually did.
