A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong…  (Alexander Pope, 18th century English poet)

Why is it so difficult for us to admit we’ve made a mistake? We seem quick to make excuses or place blame elsewhere, when it would be more helpful just to acknowledge we were wrong. Is it just a matter of pride? Pope continues his thought to encourage us. He says that when we admit our error, we are “but saying… [I am] wiser today than [I] was yesterday.”

When you become aware of your guilt… you must confess. (Leviticus 5:5)
