πŸ‘‘ Being Right vs. The Truth

Do you want to be right or do you want the truth?

So many have their focus onΒ being rightΒ — that is, winning arguments and debates — and are inflexible when it comes to the possibility of being wrong. Many stubbornly dig in their heels and just want to feel that they are right, even when there is Scripture against what they believe. The truth is what is most important.

In 2 Corinthians 13:8 we read, “For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.”

The truth never changes. There is always the possibility that our fallible opinion of what we think is right is not the truth. Our focus needs to be on whether what we believe is the truth of the Word of God. We must conform our thinking to God’s Word and have a humble, teachable heart that is willing to change if we are shown truth on a subject or passage on which we might be wrong. We must always have the spirit of a Berean (Acts 17:11) and search the Scriptures to see if what we hear and what we believe are, in fact, the truth. source
