I’m Right, You’re Wrong!

Sometimes, we act on impulse when responding to people we don’t agree with, not putting much thought into our words. This often results in causing emotional distress. We should seek understanding as much as we want to be understood. Better communication leads to building better relationships.
We won’t always agree on everything, but we should at least agree on this: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mat. 22:39). When in doubt about a person’s actions, asking questions for clarity is always better than throwing stones of condemnation.
Being right is important, but not as important as being righteous. You don’t have to put people down to make a point; if you want to make a point, follow Jesus.
