With frequent rants both publicly and on social media, we are constantly engaged with others who are simultaneously very opinionated and easily offended.
When others express opinions, I do not need to get defensive. I also do not have to take up arms each time I feel the need to express myself. We are so overly motivated by our need to be right that we don’t hear each other. Our challenge today is to give up this need to be right so that we can better live in community with others.
Jesus encountered a group of people who struggled with their need to be right, and Jesus offered us some great tools for engaging in these interactions with others.
