“This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God” (James 1:19-20).
Of those with whom we must abide the most difficult is the one who is always right or, worse still, the one who thinks himself always right. As a people called to live in fellowship with one another, the Spirit of the living Christ teaches us to value right relationships more than being right. While we like to affirm ourselves in that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we tend to forget that the same is true of everyone else.
