You're Wrong!

As Christians, it becomes easy for us to correct. After all the Bible tells us we are to correct and rebuke, providing careful instruction. It's too easy, however, to become the the instructor of the world! Suddenly we are correcting each other's every word. Well, wouldn't it be wrong to let some one's error go unchecked?

I don't think so. There is a place for grace, and a time to "be wrong with someone."  And that's what I'm blogging about Friday, as a guest on the blog of Michael Hyatt, Chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishing.

This is my 2nd opportunity to guest post, the first was in January entitled Leadership Starts at Home. I am thankful to Mr. Hyatt for sharing his platform of about 400,000 readers with me, a housewife with a devotional blog. 

Is there a benefit to being wrong with someone, and letting their error go uncorrected?  I hope you will visit my post at on Friday, and see what I think. And please, come over and leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.  I'll meet you there.

I can't wait to check the post out! My husband and I were talking the other day about loving correction. He said he has two friends -- one, who if they told him he was doing something wrong, my husband would graciously accept their constructive criticism, and the other, if he said something, my husband would become really angry at the criticism. Why? Because he knows one would do it lovingly and the other would do it to build himself up.

I'm wrong, but I will never admit it.

Great post, Kelly.
