Do you? Can you? Will you?
Traveling all last week, I heard many negative and malicious comments about Tiger Woods. There’s a fairly rampant, and unfavorable, judgement on Tiger Woods, the Golfer.
And when I took this photo, I was actually in a negative judgement mindset as well.
And then it hit me. What about Tiger Woods, the man, not the golfer. The human being, just like you and me.
If Tiger Woods asks God for forgiveness, do you think God will deny Tiger Woods?
Would God deny you forgiveness?
Then why would Tiger be any different?
Then why would I be any different?
Opportunity isn’t always obvious.
Life is hard for many people this time of year. Add to that unprecedented times, and we have an overwhelming number of people who are struggling in one way or another right now.
And I mean struggling at a greater intensity than many generations can recall.
It sure seems that way to me.
Can you imagine being Tiger Woods right now, or President Obama, or even the Pope?
Can you imagine being the average American who can no longer put food on the table, when a year ago they could quite easily?
I worry about a lot more than I used to. So, now more than ever, the phrase, “Pray without ceasing“, has a special meaning.
And also a special obligation.
