If I’ve learned anything during my years on this planet it is that every living human is fallible and the hardest thing to do (and mean it) is to say “I was wrong”. It’s been said, “Pride goes before a fall” …I personally understand that well. Unfortunately, we resist acknowledging our pride, but, those 3 words, “I was wrong”, can repair relationships quicker than almost anything else.
Father, we are so divided and angry with one another…is it possible we could begin to reconcile by learning to lay down our pride and say, “I was wrong”? Help me honestly appraise myself, humble myself and be willing to open a conversation with others, by acknowledging I could be wrong.
Help me be a healer.
Scripture: “Pride leads to destruction; humility leads to honor.” Proverbs 18:12
