Of course, it is the way things go.
On a week when an ordinary blogger writes about something, challening herself to do certain things, to respond in a certain way, to obey the Lord, she is presented with opportunities to apply the challenging teaching.
When she writes about wanting to learn to overlook an offense, one (or more) is presented to her. This is where she must put her money where her mouth is and as as the young people say, "suck it up."
After wincing a bit, and telling myself that it is a glory to overlook an offense, I took pleasure in the new book I bought, Here I Stand, by Roland Bainton. Then I ate some roasted pumpkin seeds.
Taking my own advice is occasionally uncomfortable, but the seeds were good.
