Accumulated Wisdom About Being Wrong

I tend to jump to conclusions.

It’s a bad habit, especially for a guy who sits in a wheelchair and can’t jump. But whenever there’s a controversy, I seem to have an innate need to choose a side. I’m getting better about keeping my thoughts to myself, but that doesn’t solve the heart problem. What we think matters.

I was thinking about what I’ve learned from wise people, and I distilled my thoughts into three principles.

Allow for the possibility that your initial reaction is off the mark.

Always be wrong in the direction of grace.

I’ll bet Jesus never says, “Hey, wait. That’s just too much love!”

Those would be better heart habits.
