Here is my definition of "aspirin therapy."
Aspirin therapy: anything that takes little effort, posses little harm, and may help.
Do you have an argument going? Look up the answer on google; easy, you may be wrong, you may be right.
About to drive to a new area? Look at the map:, little effort, short time investment, may save a bunch of time.
Investing in a stock? Investigate the company; a bit of effort, you may not learn anything new, you may save a bunch of money.
Buying a house? - You get the idea.
We spend too much time investigating small thing, like comparing coffee brands. We spend too little effort exploring and understanding major things:
Our major life decisions.
Take the extra effort to investigate and think clearly. There is little risk in looking at the other side of the arguments without pre-judgments. Nothing may change. It may help.
A single aspirin a day may prevent a heart attack or stroke; it may not. But it won't hurt much to take that aspirin just in case.
I plan to put a post on this same subject, but with Christian specifics, at Junior Partner Ministries Virtual Church this Sunday.
