Boy was it a day! All good. I really had to think about which one thing would make the "thankful" list. I don't mean to sound "preachy", or even think that I am better than anyone else. I am not. I am a Christian. I am a sinner. But I try to be better each and every day. Even as few as 6 years ago, I would have been the first to think the worst of a situation. Now, I try to reign in the natural tendency to dwell on the bad.
Last week, our BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) lesson left it's mark on me. "One of the true tests of a Christian is their attitude toward another's sin." Wow. Convicted. Think about it. This covers what you read in the newspapers. They are only out to make money and prey on the sins of others. The news. Ditto. However, something happened today on a football field in my hometown. Not even going to go into the details. I feel like I was the lone person who didn't point a finger, and what I saw was not convincing at all. I'll wait and see what I hear from the person face to face. And on that note, only God makes judgement. Who would I be to do that? Seriously!!!
So today, I'm thankful for last week's lesson that brought about the the painful self evaluation. Today, I can say I passed that test. However, I am still a sinner, and I will probably fail tomorrow.
