Who is right?

One of the things I remember our kids arguing about when they were little was who is right. There debates were not based on any logic or reason just shear volume and meanness so as to intimidate the opposing brother or sister into submission. As humans we seem to have been born with this bent to thinking that we are right or at least that our opinion is important. In many adult discussions people often begin their part by saying, “I think”, or this is my opinion on this matter, and then unlike little kids there is a “presentation” or the reasonableness behind our opinion. Because our self-worth seems to be tied to our opinion counting we can become very strong in our presentation to others, and even mean spirited in the discussion. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” I believe with all my heart in an all knowing, all wise God who has declared what is right and good, and He has communicated that information to us in the Bible. So it doesn’t matter much what I think, what matters is that I know what God thinks, and then live by it.
