Are you determined to be right?
Or are you more interested in being the right kind of person?
These are questions I heard the Holy Spirit whisper to me years ago.
The first time I heard these questions, my answer was the wrong one: I wanted to be right.
Praise God, He kept asking me.
Through the years, He has asked me these questions many, many times.
Usually it’s in reference to my relationship with my husband.
For some reason, I don’t have as much difficulty being the “right kind of person” with everyone else, but with Robert, it’s a different story.
I want to be right. And I want him to know it and acknowledge it.
It’s uncomfortable to admit that. Praise God, those feelings don’t come as often as they used to.
And, even better, I can rejoice that I only give in to those feelings (verbally) on rare occasion.
Because true love…
“…does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:5
I’m glad that I am better at recognizing that I can honor Robert with my heart’s attitude and trust the Lord to make sure it all works out for us, no matter which one of us is “right.”
