This week’s Wednesday Wisdom is a thought shared by Ryan Leak. Ryan says:
It’s very difficult to have a strong relationship and be right.
If we have a strong relationship with our opinion and want to be RIGHT all the time…this will cause us to lose relationships.
Let’s say you do it: you are right all the time, you are a great debater, you win every argument – but at the cost of all of your relationships….now you’ve pushed away all the people you love.
Part of sitting down with people and building bridges is laying down our RIGHTNESS. Our RIGHTNESS can prevent us from building better relationships.
Instead of being right – focus on being relational.
