They say confession is good for the soul and if that is true, Steve Harvey’s soul must be in great shape! Imagine being in front of huge audience, in person and round the world on social media. You announce the winner of the Miss Universe Contest, 2015 and read out the wrong name!
Yes, that happened to Mr. Harvey but as soon as he found out that he made a mistake, he immediately admitted that the error was entirely his own fault.
That kind of character is extremely rare in today’s world. It was just are rare in Bible times. Take a look at Saul.
“What have you done?” Samuel asked.
Saul answered, “My soldiers were leaving in all directions, and you didn’t come when you were supposed to. The Philistines were gathering at Mishmash, and I was worried that they would attack me here at Gilgal. I hadn’t offered a sacrifice to ask for the Lord’s help, so I forced myself to offer a sacrifice on the altar fire.” (From 1Samuel 13:11-12 CEV)
Results: Saul lost his place as king, while Steve Harvey is expected to host next year’s Miss Universe.
Prayer – Lord, give us the courage to take the blame when we are guilty. Amen
