What if He’s wrong

​It’s fairly easy to apologize when we’re wrong. The table turns however when we’re right. It becomes quite tough. How can I apologize and reconcile when I’m right? Am I mad? For what? So he’d think he/she was right? God forbid! 

But I’m reminded of a mighty king who was wronged grossly by his subordinates. This king left his magnificent throne and came to reconcile with these subordinates and still they refused to. He did everything he could and eventually sacrificed his very own life just to get them reconciled. His name is Jesus. He did that for You, to reconcile you to the Father. 

As much as it’s within your power, live at peace with all men. And yes you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. 

Being Involved

“If you think you’re ready to get involved, you should be ready to get hurt and most importantly, you should be ready to forgive”

At first glance, you would assume the quote borders on relationships. You would be right at the assumption. A deeper look would unravel however that it cuts across, even beyond relationships.

But first, let us expand on relationships. One of the quintessence of the greatest relationship ever known to man is that of Christ and us. He chose to get involved with us and as a result got hurt. Most importantly, He forgave us and still forgives our shortcomings day in day out. His is a case of perfection. The only wrong he ever committed was choosing to get involved in our lives.

For any relationship to thrive, both parties must be willing to withstand their shortcomings and forgive as many times as needed.

Beyond relationships, the phrase also suggests pessimism at first glance. But it means quite the opposite in actuality. Your knowledge of the imperfect human nature would give you the ability to come to terms with others’ shortcomings. You’re expecting the best but know there will be hurts in the process.

However, the mindset of being ready to be hurt and forgive does not give you the right to suffer untold pain and sorrow or to be walked upon.

Another aspect this quote covers is LIFE. In life, being ready to get hurt and your ability to forgive yourself, the people involved or the circumstances responsible is important. Because every life would experience hurt and so it is important to forgive and move on.
