"They always do..."
It’s not that he wished ill towards this Pastor, both he and I have experienced scandals in churches and business multiple times. These stories should be shocking, and yet, it’s become mundane to see another church, government, an education official at a press conference explaining how they made a mistake…and got caught.
We were both cynics
What Does Scripture Say About Cynicism?
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful" - Psalms 1:1
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way of everlasting” Psalm 139:23-24
Today, may you control your thoughts. May you not be a slave to cynicism, but may you look at the world the way the Lord sees the world. May you see the world through His eyes and may you respond with grace and wisdom.
