I am looking at my computer right now just like this pug and thinking 'What have I done?' I hit a try something new button for my blog and I don't like it and now I don't know how to change it back. So I've spent the last hour, unsuccessfully, trying to fix it and relearning how to blog. Is that what the pug is going to try to do on his daily walk, try to undo the pizza fiasco?
Guilt can be a powerful force. It can be a good thing tho to show us our need of repentance. Forgiveness is there waiting for us. We just have to seek it and ask for it.
If I had a nickel for every time someone has agreed with me and not known what I said, I'd have a pretty sweet bank account. I've done it too so don't go all guilty on me. Just so you know, I usually know when you don't get what I've said. I often try to rephrase it and sometimes that works. It's better for both of us if you just ask me to say it again. I'm telling you here and now, it doesn't hurt my feelings or offend me. If we had a DVR's rewind button for life's conversations, I bet our buttons would be used quite often.
The Gospels of the Bible often tell of the same parables that Jesus spoke of. It not only is an accountable record of events written by different people but maybe God knew we needed it said more than once for us to get it. If we missed the parable of the mustard seed in Matthew, then maybe we'd understand it in Mark.
'What?' is a fair question so don't be afraid to use it. God knows whether we hear Him or not and it's a pretty good bet, He'll repeat it till you hear... loud and clear.
