Wrong and Happy (by Becky Rommel)

Good morning!! I get this sense of happiness when I’m right about things. Actually, it feels great!! I like being right who doesn’t!! Believing that I know what I’m talking about makes me feel smart. One problem. The man I’m married to feels the same way. I use to tell him “Chris do you want to be RIGHT or do you want to be HAPPY?” I can sure make things miserable for him if I want to. My pride is a strong emotion. Pride ties all the things that I THINK I’m right about together. What does it create? Misery for everyone involved. REFUSING to be wrong is over rated and tiring. James 4:6 says that pride is the great root of all UNKIND affections. Saying “I’m sorry” breaks all strings of pride apart. Today I am going to try to learn how to be WRONG and HAPPY. Fill me with joy!! Love you:-)

 

“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” James 4:6
