Being Right

This isn't a political reference. I'm thinking about the times when being right means someone else is very wrong. There are times when a person might celebrate being right and there are times when the outcomes for others is painful. Just maybe, we could keep our rightness to ourselves so as to not to seem to take any pleasure in the resultant difficulty for another.

As followers of Jesus, we can be informed by Him, when on the cross, He said, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." Being right to Him in light of the sin around Him, only brought Him pain. The pain of a horrible death.

Let us aim to be right, without condemning those who are wrong.

John 3:17 (NIV)
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
