Wouldn't you agree that we, as humans, make pretty dumb choices in our lives? Matt Wilson came and spoke in chapel on yesterday. He mentioned about how he had a tough time respecting his coach. I said to myself, well, I don't like the basketball coach that is here now and I don't play basketball so I'm excused from that...I can disrespect him if I want to. WRONG!
Just because I may not have liked him when he coached in track and maybe I don't like him now, but I still need to respect him. He is my elder and the Bible tells us that we need to respect our elders. This is something that I've been struggling with for a long time. Especially in the past year with the whole Obama thing.
I really have been talking down about Obama to my friends and family and I am wrong to do that. I need to pray for and support my leaders. I can disagree with him, but that does not give me the right to go around badmouthing him. He's the President of the United States of America for goodness sake! *sigh* God, you know how dumb I am. Heck, you probably sit up there on your big white throne and laugh your head off at some things that I do. Oh well. At least I know that I will be forgiven for everything that I do wrong if I just ask it of you! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!! Thank you God!
