The Power of Being Wrong

31 Jan

The Power of Being Wrong…

When I was 17, a friend was driving with me at 50 miles per hour on a two-lane road, and we see a guy driving his car the wrong way. We are head-on, honking the horn, as he swerves to the other lane. We were laughing.

Then another guy on the wrong side of the road was heading toward us and he swerved to the other lane. We began to think that everybody’s going crazy until we suddenly realized we were on the passing lane of the opposite traffic.

Afterward it dawned on us that there might be another explanation. Maybe it wasn’t them, but us. We admitted we were wrong which saved our lives. So in life you might be confronting the same problems repeatedly; where you think everybody else is wrong.

Maybe you’re in the wrong lane, or it’s not the situation, or perhaps it’s the direction of your heart, your attitude. The problems will only stop when you get in the right lane.

It’s the power of knowing that you are wrong. Ask yourself the question, maybe I’m wrong? If you can ask that question, in God, you can turn everything around.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Proverbs 11:2

Learn to observe your perspective on things in order to see ideas from a different point of view, you might come away with a completely different solution to a nagging problem.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
