Being Wrong.


Why do we insist on things even when we know they are wrong?

Fear of being wrong is a major motivation for injustice in our world.

We fear looking foolish.

We fear losing respect.

We fear losing our position in society or our job.

This was a major motivation for Jesus' crucifixion.

The Pharisees feared losing their position as the Spiritual Shepherds of Israel.

And the Romans feared insurrection because Jesus was being hailed as the Messiah - the King of the Jews.

So do not be afraid of being wrong.

God will still love you.

And you may even earn the respect of society.
