Simple

It seems like a simple idea.

If I’m screwing up, I want someone to let me know.

Except when I don’t.

Except when I think I’m right.

Except when I know that what I have in mind is the right thing.

Then I get angry

Defensive

And lash out like an annoyed bear.

But that doesn’t make them any less right

Or me any less wrong,

Or me any less of a sinner.

Were it only as easy as that.

Were I any less prideful in my own opinions and biases.

Courage is needed on both sides.

About grantimusmax

Grant Barnes, aka Grantimus Maximus, aka The Nerdcore Theologian. He is a graduate of Perkins School of Theology with a Masters Degree in Divinity. He is also a commissioned elder in the United Methodist Church, and Senior Pastor at Hemphill First United Methodist Church and Pineland United Methodist Church. He graduated from Texas State University Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in English, minor in History. He watches way too many movies, reads too many books, listens to too much music, and plays too many video games to ever join the mundane reality people claim is the "Real World." He rejects your reality, and replaces it with a vision of what could be, a better one, shaped by his love for God.
