Right, in all the Wrong Ways

How do you tell wrong people that they’re wrong without being wrong yourself?

I’m getting stuck there all the time.  The world is not as it should be, and sometimes, somebody, ought to do something about it.  It seems though that whenever I’m the one to speak up amidst the silent elephant of wrong in the room, I end up marked as the one in the wrong.

It’s true.  Too bold and too soon doesn’t get received well.  I guess correction isn’t the only pathway to change either.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged,” were the words of Jesus (Matthew 7:1). I think I have a lot to learn here still.
