Quote for 09/05/2021

bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.    Colossians 3:13

******************************

Gossip. It’s insidious. We may think we know what we’re talking about, but we often don’t.

Many years ago when I was acting, a young lady in the show was having trouble learning her lines. There was a lot of muttering amongst the company, and I started getting those same negative thoughts too, feeding off others’ comments. But the thought came to me that maybe she just needs a hand.

I invited Maureen to my apartment for lunch; bologna sandwiches. I ran her lines with her, and she was much improved in the afternoon rehearsal.

Maybe someone actually did you wrong. I remind myself that everyone is someone’s jerk…even me! I think we hurt each other accidently more often than not. I’d like to be forgiven for an inadvertent – even deliberate slight just as I suppose the “jerks” in my life would like to be when all is said and done!

  1. Your thought today reminds me of the saying, “Those who live by the sword die by the sword.” The best social strategy is to come off as kind, rather we feel that way or not. Because, like you say, “Everyone is someone else’s a-hole.” Blessings, brother!

Your ideas are important too!
