CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My brother wrote a very thought provoking post on Facebook the other day that I thought was worth sharing pieces of this morning. The topic was “What if We’re Wrong.”
What if what we hold dear is wrong, what if the point of view we militantly protect, is actually wrong. Now, I can understand how you can be wrong but me? But me, I’ve done my research. I’m smart. I went to college, wrote papers, traveled the world, have friends that don’t look like me. Therefore, I must be the right one. Obviously, that all is idiotic and sounds as stupid in writing as it does speaking it to you this morning. But seriously, how often do we consider if we are wrong?
How often when discussing something with someone do we come to the conclusion we see things with different lenses and ultimately agree to disagree. Both probably leave the conversation still convinced their lens is a little clearer and the other one still doesn’t see quite right. So what does it feel like to be wrong? Sucks, hate it, embarrassing, wind kicked out from under your feed, eat crow, are all typically answers. But what if I told you that is what it feels like to finally DISCOVER that you are wrong. When you ARE wrong, but don’t know it yet, it feels exactly like when you are right. Stop and think about that…how often do we every consider that we might actually be wrong, that we might not fully understand the complexities of the topic. Even when the evidence is overwhelming, our pride normally wins and doesn’t let us concede.
Remember From Matthew 7. 1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
I just encourage you to reflect on this as you engage in conversations with your friends with challenging topics in the coming days and weeks ahead.
