If I’m wrong, what am I?

0121What’s more important to you, being right or resolving of an issue?

Most of us have found ourselves at some point thinking that being right is how we prove our worth, but is this true? Can always “being right” limit us, stop growth, or diminish outcomes?

In his blog “The Wrong Side of Right” Shane Parrish delves into this subject and asks some questions that encourage self examination.

It made me think what does this mean to me as a Christian. If I insist that I am always right, then does that mean I think of myself as perfect? And I can’t be perfect, because I’m human, and we’ve been thrown out of the garden. That means I’d better stop and listen to Holy Spirit prompts before I insist that I am the only one with the truth and react.
