You Just Might Be Wrong!


Let me share one of the many items on my personal list of “things I have learned the hard way.” Ready? Here it is:


If everyone tells you that you’re wrong, you just might be wrong!


When I think of the trouble I could have avoided, the pain I could have been spared if only I had taken it to heart when people warned me I was making poor choices, it staggers me. So today, I simply want to pass on this hard-won bit of wisdom: if you are set on a certain course and people who know you and love you are concerned about the choices you are making, make absolutely certain to:


1. Listen carefully to them.


2. Examine in detail your reasons for making the decision(s) you are making. Be on the lookout for:

· Intellectual errors. I.e., Did you make a logical misstep somewhere? Are you making an unwarranted assumption?

· Emotional errors. I.e., Are you so emotionally wrapped-up in the decision that you refuse to consider that it might be wrong?

· Spiritual errors. I.e., Is your relationship with God on the downward spiral? Do you want something that is clearly outside of God’s will?


3. Share those reasons with the people who were giving you the warnings.


4. Listen carefully to them again!


Sure – sometimes people can think you’re making a mistake, and they themselves can be mistaken. But, that being said …


If everyone tells you that you’re wrong, you just might be wrong!
