Honestly Mistaken

Honest mistakes are almost inevitable in the quest for truth, innovation, and change. Those who’ve never made mistakes are those who’ve greatly accomplished nothing. Though costly, we shouldn’t be discouraged by mistakes. Mistakes afford an opportunity to learn and grow. They keep us humble and enable us to see reality—and ourselves—more clearly. Most mistakes can be forgiven and corrected, provided we’ll humbly submit to the truth. Our response to truth reveals whether we’re really honest or are frankly misguided, stupid, & deluded (John 3:19-21; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12). For when truth is presented to the honestly mistaken, they either cease to be mistaken or cease to be honest.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
