Does anybody listen? Who can we go to? Who cares?
When do two wrongs make a right? You hurt me so I hurt you.
Proof is in who is wronged. The hate and foulness from the offended depends upon whose Ox is getting gored.
Sympathy for underdog or mob rule? We protest too much trying to prove who’s right. To eat humble pie is a bit much when you think you are right. To admit a wrong is beneath us when against “OUR” will.
Who is that inside us saying, “This is the way, walk in it?” Truthfully, in this life you shall find persecution. So where do these thoughts of getting even come from? In the secret place behind closed eyelids and closed doors we can admit You are always there as an originator of the thoughts and intent of the heart. “OUR” Father, You made us to “BE” Holy as You are Holy! You name us As Your possession and You never give up on us to “BE” all You intended for us to “BE”.
The proof is in Your desire to rule and reign in “OUR” lives with You plan for us with a Word each and every day to know that these thoughts come down from on high, from Your storehouse of endurance. No one else could know more about what we have need of than You do. Thank You for forgiving us for trespassing on Your will for us. We will need others to “BE” as forgiving as You are with us, may we “BE” as forgiving to them?
To “BE” led out of “OUR” poverty, sin and greed into Your Kingdom, power and glory, delivered from the evil one’s blame and shame game. How can we escape so great salvation if we can’t admit we’re wrong and in need of forgiving and cleansing, knowing You have every right to do so and the power to “do it”!
If only we could say, “I’m Sorry” and mean it!
