BEING RIGHT

Do you see a person wise in their own eyes?
     There is more hope for a fool than for them.
     — Proverbs 26:12
 
“Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There
is more hope for a fool than for them.” How could there
be more hope for a fool than a wise person? When we
are so attached to being wise in our own eyes – to
being right all the time — there is more hope for a
four-year-old who doesn’t know much, but also doesn’t
need to be right. Sometimes our attachment to our
wisdom can stop us from making intelligent decisions.
 
Today, let’s take some time to think about “being right.”
When do we feel the need to be right? Does it ever get
in the way of our relationships at home, at work, or with
strangers? Today, practice being kind over being right.
And if there is a relationship in our lives that needs
mending, let us be brave enough to pick up the phone
and call. Choose happiness, choose kindness, and
choose life.
