Being right is a matter of perspective as well. I may see right differently than you do…so we get back to the greatest law, which is the law of love. God is love and if we show his attributes, we will truly be in the right in the end, even if we do not see things the way others see them.
Showing love and understanding towards other people’s frailties and weaknesses is what God prefers. We could be right but let it be tempered with kindness towards the other person. God commands us to love one another, that includes being kind.
Something God slowly whittles away at over time until your life is no longer about you if you give your life to Him. Life becomes about serving God and serving others above all else. When we can come to a point in our life where what we want is of little significance, we no longer have to be right, our personal value in this world means nothing!
As the bible says, we are stronger when we are at our weakest moments, when all we can do is turn it all over to God, He then fills us, build us, holds us up.
