Now, without boring you to tears, or shaming anyone, we had a very interesting conversation. The afternoon boiled down to two main points:
When history repeats itself, why are we powerless to stop it? and, moreover,
Have you ever done something completely stupid, for no good reason? or no good bad reason, for that matter?
For me it all boils down to Paul. The Apostle Paul. He put it best in the book of Romans when he said: What I should do, I do not do. What I should not do, I do that too. What I do do, I should not do... What I do do, is doo-doo... (Lori's loose translation)
In other words, welcome to the human race. We all do doo-doo (stupid stuff). The true measure of a Christian, is what we do in the aftermath of our stupidity (sinfulness) and how we take care of the others that may have been wronged by our actions.
Love one another. It is our greatest command. Forgive one another. Protect one another.
Oh, and get used to the stupid-thing. I don't see it going away anytime soon! Just sayin'.
Until next time:
Peace to you and yours,
