First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:24  New King James Version

A stiff apology is a second insult.   G. K. Chesterton

DARKNESS

Have you ever had someone sarcastically apologize to you? You know they are not remorseful; they are doing it because they have to. If you grew up with brothers and or sisters I am sure that has happened to you.

Isn’t it better to not apologize at all?

When this happens to me I just look them in the eye and ask one simple question that drives them nuts: “Are you?”  It drives them nuts because their hypocrisy is exposed.

Then just talk with them, explain why what they did was wrong and why a sincere apology is in order. Tell them you refuse to talk with them until they are truly sorry. Then take it to the Lord in prayer that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their wrong attitude. In my experience it takes no more than a day or two before they come round.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be them! Joseph- Anthony- Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God our peace) please fill me with wisdom and peace when encountering phony people who mock me with their sarcastic pretentious attitudes and apologies. In the name of the one who received many such insults Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
