Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. It’s the way God made us.
The Problem With Being Right All The Time is that we have to be strong in everything and weak in nothing to get there.
Jesus tells us to be perfect, as our Heavenly Father is perfect. Yet He knows we’re completely incapable of it, so He pays for our perfection with His own blood so that He can give it to us as a gift.
The Problem With Being Right All The Time is that we can get confused about whether it is Jesus who has given us perfection, or whether it is something that we have earned by ourselves.
God wants us to reach out in love and compassion to others, especially others whom we can bless and who desperately need it.
The Problem With Being Right All The Time is that we may avoid reaching out to others who are wrong and whose wrongness may somehow corrupt our rightness. It may prevent us from recognizing their desperate need because it prevents us from seeing our own.
God wants us to be forgiving without being judgmental. Okay, that’s just a really tall order right there.
The Problem With Being Right All The Time is that we feel we almost have to be judgmental before we can be forgiving … and it can make us feel that we have a moral responsibility to point out the immoral irresponsibility of others, early and often. Which makes it much more difficult to reach much of anyone.
Jesus was forgiving long before He promised to return in judgment. That’s the example He left us.
The Problem With Being Right All The Time is that we people who feel we ourselves are in no particular danger of judgment are just not sympathetic towards people who (we feel) REALLY ARE in danger of judgment but don’t particularly feel it themselves. We feel very little urgency about the judgment, since we ourselves are safe and immune and guaranteed a free ticket to the very nicest luxury suburb of heaven where only other people like us will live forever.
At least that’s how I see The Problem With Being Right All The Time.
(I could be wrong about it.)
