Could the right path not always be the easy one, the well-worn path that others have followed?
Could “right” be doing what is wrong for the good of others?
Could giving up our “rights” for one another be the best use of them?
Could our best right choice be to refrain from insisting that we are?
Perhaps our happiness is less about being right, doing all the right things, or clinging to our rights, but in simply finding our joy at God’s right hand.
You show me the path of life.
In your presence there is fullness of joy;
in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
(Psalm 16:11 NRSV)
