Where the world comes to study the Bible

I Wish I Were…

  • honest enough to admit all my shortcomings;
  • brilliant enough to accept flattery without it making me arrogant;
  • tall enough to tower above deceit;
  • strong enough to treasure love;
  • brave enough to welcome criticism;
  • compassionate enough to understand human frailties;
  • wise enough to recognize my mistakes;
  • humble enough to appreciate greatness;
  • staunch enough to stand by my friends;
  • human enough to be thoughtful of my neighbor; and
  • righteous enough to be devoted to the love of God.
