Teachable spirit

Vicki Gaines writes about God's love freeing her from "the chronic need to defend myself and correct others"
Answering a critic is not a problem. Sometimes it leads to fruitful communication, especially when a bit of clarification is needed. But I've lost the desire to debate; I'd rather let others express themselves without feeling intimidated, or jumping in to correct all the time. In matters of truth, I'll calmly state my case and let the Holy Spirit do His thing. I can't change anyone's heart. I can't even change a flat tire! The Holy Spirit does a much better job at dealing with hearts than I do. Sometimes the very heart He changes is mine.
