Most important words...

"Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
Matthew 23:12

When I was in seventh and eighth grade, I used to walk to my dad's office at the newspaper and catch a ride home with him. I often waited (and waited) for him to finish his busy day and one thing I often read over and over was a statement he had on his wall. It started at the bottom with the "Ten most important words" and then went up to the single most important word and finally the LEAST most important word. For the purpose of today's message, I will fill you in on the six most important words: "I admit I made a mistake." I remember thinking this whatever-it-was on my dad's wall was so right on! I really learned from it, even at an age when not much got through to me (remember I was in seventh/eighth grade!) I admit I made a mistake. It speaks to this gospel today. It is indeed humbling to admit we make mistakes, but we sure do make them, don't we? It is rather grown up to admit it when we make a mistake. Maybe that it is a sign we ARE grown up! So, let it be known here in this vast Internetland! I make mistakes! Many per day, in fact, despite my efforts not to make them. And also, in case you are wondering, the three most important words are "I am sorry," the two most important words are "thank you," the single most important word is "please" and the least important word is "I." See, isn't that good? Love, heidi
