What exactly is a Fresh Friday? I don’t know. I was looking for something catchy to go with Friday.
So, I’m assuming I can define “Fresh” however I want.
I’m thinking along the lines of “Fresh Honest Perspective.”
So, here we have it…
I hold grudges. Yes…I do. You know how it says in 1 Corinthians 13 that Love holds no records of wrongs. I pretty much fail at this. I have a store house of records, all neatly typed and filed away in my heart, so that when the timing is right (of course…in the heat of battle…always prepared like William Wallace) I whip those suckers out and BAM!! Not only am I going to be upset about the conflict that is going on now…but also about the one from Section B Column Q Row 5.39. Gotcha!
I had a conversation with a girl yesterday, years younger than myself. “Conflicts could be resolved so much more easily if people were willing to concentrate on the issue at hand and not all the issues that happened in the past. Why can’t people just forgive? I mean…REALLY forgive?”
A Fresh Honest Perspective from the mouth of a 15 year old girl.
Why is it so hard to forgive? To hold no records of wrong?
And wouldn’t this world be just a little bit better if we attempted to take those files and records that we so bitterly store away for heated moments and just….throw them away?
How are we supposed to love one another with filing cabinets chained to our hearts?
