Presidents’ Day

Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes [is] right . . . (Andrew Jackson, 7th U.S. president)

Jackson continues, “. . . but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error.” Remember the old Happy Days TV sitcom? Fonzie just could not admit to making a mistake. He stammered trying. That is a pretty good picture of many proud people who think they’re always right. Better the person who acknowledges his failures.

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. (James 5:17)
