Right or Wrong

Who will win? Or can we both be winners?

Who will win? Or can we both be winners?

I once witnessed a demonstration of an arm wrestling match where the objective was dramatically changed.  Rather than the typical “put down” by over-powering another, this particular match showed how both contestants could be winners. We have probably all been around individuals who must always be right and express their opinions forcefully. Often they have difficulty apologizing. They need to feel superior, but it usually produces the opposite effect.  Who is right and who is wrong?  Does it really matter in most instances? Of more importance is the ability to demonstrate understanding, compassion, and love for all.  Thus there is no need for a winner or a loser because we are all winners. “The important message is that we control our tongues, and by speaking kind words to each other, emulate in our relationships…the loving kindness the Lord has for His people” (Marion G. Romney).  I want to become a better disciple of Christ through words and actions. We are all children of Heavenly Father and deserve courtesy and respect.
