Still unsure as to who (if anyone) is reading this stuff I return now to edit this post…
The original title (The Beer Summit or Shut Up and Mind Your Own Business) has been changed for two very important reasons:
- The content of this post is changing dramatically, and
- I like this title better… it has a much nicer ring to it don’t you think?
Anyway, the conclusion I’ve come to is that while I still believe that we all really do need to mind our own business, the state of my own heart at the time of penning this post was not appropriate. It was a bitter rant that aimed at venting my own frustrations with the state of humanity in one form or another. The other day I re-read it while we were driving back home from Florida and I realized that I was mistaken in feeling justified to condemn others in our society for things that I too am guilty of. I’ve also noticed that many of my theories as of late have been subject to my emotions and I wish to stop myself before I slip further.
The point is simple, I am a man of God who has been called to something beyond my ordinary self. The Lord has called me into a leadership role in His Church and I’ve not been acting like it… perhaps I was resisting again or maybe I’ve just allowed myself to slip back into a state of complacent unrest. In any event, I must apologize for my words and pray that from now on He will speak through me.
