v 2) I’m finding my way down the road of right living, but how long before you show up? I’m doing the very best I can, and I’m doing it at home, where it counts.
Yesterday Mark told me about yet another Pastor who had messed things up by getting into a relationship he should not have. Proof yet again that the title Pastor does not put you out of the way of temptation.
So often we can look the part, say the right things and give an impression of Spiritual maturity but no matter who we are we can't fake it at home. I am convinced if we get it right there we will get it right everywhere.
Home is very often where my worst side manifest the most. Somehow because you are around the people that love you the most sometime you can be the most unguarded. The real me appears and sometimes I don't like the real me.
Some of the things that I see in myself that I know damage my most important relationships: Selfishness, Impatience & Lazyness. There are much more but I think that is enough for now.
Help me God to do IT at home where it counts!
