Iโ€™ve been wrong, and will be again

I wrote this November 17, 2018 and the lesson still remains true.

As Iโ€™ve gone through this journey, Iโ€™ve shared what Iโ€™ve learned. At one point I was writing a blog. There are things I wrote that I now see were not quite accurate. It was only one side of a coin. Itโ€™s ok to realize you were wrong. Itโ€™s ok to admit it. Itโ€™s how we learn and grow. Whatโ€™s not ok is being unteachable.

Thereโ€™s no wisdom in thinking we are right and refusing to back down. Thereโ€™s judgements and criticism we have and offer when we donโ€™t understand something.

There were aspects about leading an assembly I had no clue what I was talking about until now. There are things I was wrong and was unwise about. Itโ€™s like someone who has no kids judging a parent on how they raise their kids. Clearly there are obvious truths that apply to everyone, but there are certain things that shouldnโ€™t be uttered because the truth is, we have no idea. Someone who has no kids needs to be wise about certain judgements and criticism because the truth is they really donโ€™t know both sides of that coin.

Thatโ€™s how I was. Judging and criticizing certain things about pastors and church leaders bc I didnโ€™t have both sides to a coin.

There are truths that remain true no matter what perspective you have, but there are some you have no clue until you actually experience it.

The key is to be teachable.
Listen.
Have a heart that seeks.

I donโ€™t have all the answers. I never will. Iโ€™m ok with that because my Father does and I have full access to go to Him every time I need.

I wanted everyone who takes the time to read my posts to know that Iโ€™m not always right and Iโ€™m not ashamed to admit it – because Iโ€™m always learning and growing.

Iโ€™ve had conversations with people who havenโ€™t agreed with me and I do listen. Thank you to those who care enough to share their positions in a loving and open manner.

Jesus has taught me so much. He continues to teach me and I know it will be a life time of learning. Good thing I love to learn ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love you all. Loving isnโ€™t always easy, but Jesus made it possible. โค๏ธ
