being clear is not the same as being right


I had a long and fruitful discussion with Timo this evening about cell groups, training leaders and discipling others. A good discussion is one that leaves me thinking long after the conversation is over. And today I had this one thought:

Being clear is not the same as being right.

Though there are certain things about ministry which I am able to articulate in a clearer way because I had thought through it, that alone does not make me right. And on the flipside, sometimes though I am not very clear in explaining my thoughts, that alone should not be a discouragement as well.

It was a good lesson about listening – though I think I was so passionate about what I was saying, I talked a lot – and humility.

The funny thing is, I discovered later from Graham that everyone sitting outside Timo’s office could hear us haha! Errr.
