“You know, Keri, I think, when we get to the new heavens and new earth, we will realize a lot of things that we think are right are wrong,” said Hannah, whom I always look up to, during our conversation on how Christians always want to be right.
The same wise Hannah also shared that, there was a time she told herself, “I’d never do this to anybody” after a sister had hurt her. But she realized she should never be so certain to think that way, because one day she may indeed do the same to others.
These have been my lessons, too.
There were a few times I was so certain that I could not at all be wrong in my interpretations of certain scriptures. Yet I changed my view, again and again. And I couldn’t even comprehend why I used to hold this or that view with such certainty.
There were a few times I was so certain that I would never treat someone that way I was treated. And I couldn’t be more wrong to trust in my self-confidence and self-sufficiency.
Truly, never be so certain, for we are not the Lord.
