Giving up my right is often hard, especially when it is to please others and satisfy their selfish, inconsiderate wishes and relieve their irrevocable guilt and shame. You may be called foolish for doing so but the truth is that giving up your "right to be right" is a clear indication of God's unselfish and sacrificial love in your life, that seeks the good of others even when it means letting go of your one treasure or getting out of your comfort zone. After all, it is a what loving God and loving others means; seeking the good of others in whatever I do.
Well, it's your choice to make! You either choose to obey God or you may choose to do things your own way. But take a moment and think about the consequences. Abraham did not fret. Yes, he may have been heart broken to know that the one thing that he desired so much for many years have come, and now this one thing (a son) which he loved and cherished dearly, he was asked to give it up. For what cause? Even though Abraham knew not the good that will come out of this sacrifice, he obeyed God and by faith he went to offer up his only beloved son to God, whom he can't see but trusted Him with his life. Abraham had a right to his son, but he was willing to give it all up because of His love for God. Ultimately, God blessed Abraham and He even spared his son's life (vs.12). That's right! God prevented Abraham from killing his only son. This was a test of Abraham's faith in God and his love Him.
As Christians, our love Jesus Christ, our love for God is tested daily by the decisions we face. We may make a good decisions but it may be with the wrong attitude. So when you make a decision to give up your "right to be right", ensure that you do it willing and unselfishly, not grudgingly or puffed up. Having the right attitude like in Abraham's case, will attract God's bountiful blessings in your life (vs. 17), especially when we give up our right to be right for the sake of loving God (and loving others).
"...for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul." (Deut. 13:1-3).
