I’m Sorry, Man

May 16, 2013

When my son-in-law Ewing and I attended a sporting event, we enjoyed watching both the game and the people around us.

One of those people showed both the bad and good side of humanity. This man had apparently lost track of his seat. As he was looking for it, he stood squarely between us and the field. A man sitting in front of us also had his view blocked, so he told the guy, “Could you move? We can’t see.”

The lost man responded sarcastically, “Too bad.” A second request got a similar but more heated response. Finally the man moved on. Later came a surprise. He returned and told the man he had blocked, “Hey, I’m sorry, man. I was upset that I couldn’t find my seat.” They shook hands and the incident ended well.

That interaction made me think. As we go through life striving to find our way, situations may frustrate us and cause us to respond to others in an un-Christlike way. If so, we must ask God to give us the courage to apologize to those we have offended. Our worship, according to Jesus, depends on it (Matt. 5:23-24).

We honor God when we make reconciliation with others a priority. After we have been reconciled, we can then fully enjoy communion with our heavenly Father.

It’s not easy, Lord, to swallow our pride and ask
others to forgive us. But You want us to seek
reconciliation before worship can take place.
Help us to seek forgiveness when necessary.
Confession of sin is the soil in which forgiveness flourishes.

Read: Matthew 5:21-26

Be reconciled to your brother. —Matthew 5:24
Bible in a Year:
2 Kings 24-25; John 5:1-24

To: Kathy in Alaska; All
David is doing well, thanks very much. We had him to his Primary Care Physician today - all clear. His cheek is quite swollen - lacerations inside. This guy really cleaned his clock.

The perp is charged with Assault in the second degree, which in Maryland means assault without a firearm. Trial is set for 1July2013 at 0845 in that Citadel of Justice, the District Court of Maryland for Prince George's County located in beautiful downtown Hyattsville, Md.

Maximum penalty: imprisonment not exceeding 10 years or a fine not exceeding $2,500.00, or both. I don't know whether this guy has any priors - if not, he'll probably walk.

Good evening, Sandy! My prayers ascend on high for the Boy Scouts of America - may they survive the attack on their Code, and upon the Code that binds us all!

Good evening, Mayor! Thank you so much for the daily lesson. I've probably been that guy up in front - I know I've been the guy in back many times.

Incidents like that, and the response "I'm Sorry, man!" say a lot about what we are as civilized people, irrespective of our persuasion.

May the Lord give me the Patience to indulge my fellow man as he gropes for the Truth, as I hope he will indulge me.

New computer??? What did you get?

Getting stuff on a new one is lots of fun....not!

I emailed all my codes to myself. Then I had the same ones at work and on my laptop and they were all the same. Sorta like copying the thread codes to you and me.

It’s always fun not knowing that something is missing until you need it. d:o)

Happy veggie dinner!

Leaving early has its problems....like being stuck in traffic...like tonight.

I’m OK for now.
Still have the windows open, but the lightning is getting frequent.
