Being wrong

Have you ever noticed how everyone in the bible got some prediction wrong? Nobody could see the future 100% John the Baptist is called by Jesus the greatest prophet, yet he thought everything would be wrapped up by one visit of the Messiah. Paul wasn’t sure when Jesus would come back. He seems to say it would be very soon. Yet look at the centuries! Even Jesus didn’t know the future. “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24:36

So in this light, its fun to wonder where we’re wrong. How our assumptions may have lead us astray. I keep wondering where I’m wrong. We will be shown in the future. It’s kind of nice knowing that we don’t have to get everything 100% correct. And it’s humbling knowing that we may be corrected. When the disciples picked Matthias to replace Judas, the Lord did not rebuke them, but merely overlooked it, and supernaturally called Paul instead. God can handle honest mistakes.
