Right

52 Bible Verses about the Word of God - DailyVerses.net

Joining today with the #Five Minute Friday group of writers where we write for 5 minutes on a one word prompt. Today’s word is: Right

We like to be right don’t we? We don’t like when we are wrong and we certainly don’t like when others point out that we are wrong?

Yet Proverbs [14:12] says:

There is a way that appears to be right,
    but in the end it leads to death.

So often what appears to be ‘right’ is not, it is not the right path for us to be on and in the end it leads to our spiritual death. So surely then it is better to be checked, better to be warned, better to have the wrong pointed out so that we can turn and walk on the right paths, the good way, the way of the Lord.

So today we need grace and humility to accept correction, to accept rebuke, to accept that perhaps we are not always right!!. We need grace and humility to admit our wrong to ourselves, to others and to God. And we need grace and humility to move on from that to the ‘right’ way, the right things and the right paths.

May God grant us that today. Amen.

  1. Grace and humility – Amen! Great post, Fiona! Especially love this… “better to be checked, better to be warned, better to have the wrong pointed out so that we can turn and walk on the right paths, the good way, the way of the Lord.” Yes, that’s so much better!
    Thanks for this encouragement. I’m glad I stopped by.

  2. That verse is so important. It’s important to remember that just because something seems right to us doesn’t mean it it. We definitely need that grace and humility to listen to others who try to correct us.

  3. It can work literally, too.

    The path, it looked so open,
    through glade and leafy dell,
    but it would leave me broken,
    and it led to Hell.
    The wide and smooth and friendly road
    looked tailor-made for me;
    I should have known that it would hold
    a fearsome IED.
    The easy way was just the bait,
    beguiling Judas-goat;
    point man stepped on pressure plate,
    and that was all she wrote.
    We who survived, are living yet,
    have heart-scars that we won’t forget.

  4. Amen! I love the verse you chose.

    Oh how hard it can be to be humble at times but oh how sweet when we finally release our grasp on our pride. “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6

  5. Amen! In these days we are finding ourselves, we each think we are right. May we have humility in accepting correction and be grateful we did not continue on the wrong path.
