We can be wrong even when we're right
Do you remember that student in school who always blew the bell curve during an exam and were always right (and let everyone know it)..? They weren't technically wrong...but they weren't really right, in many other ways. We want to feel like we always have the answers but we can't always. Humility goes a long way in the society we live in. The world will be more inclined to listen to you if, for example, you share interests you might have in a certain subject/hobby/interest/etc., when you share your enthusiasm in a positive way. After all, you want to see them have the same enjoyment from them. The same logic applies to witnessing. You could be the most well read person on all things bible related, but still put people off by a less than contrite, humble approach.
What a shame that would be to have someone leave and not be interested in hearing more about Christianity and the Word, all because of how it was delivered. And technically, you might have very well been correct. Often times, society's only understanding of the Bible is from Hollywood and the media. Remaining humble is something the world has fallen away from, especially during a period of time in which Christianity is suffering from a PR crisis.
1 Peter 3:15 "But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect..."
This especially applies in disagreements over how to apply the Word of God in our lives.
Titus 3:2 "To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people."
Nothing will change if we don't apply these principles first. After all, there's more to life than just being right.
