Ever notice how attorneys often have a way of speaking and phrasing things that seems almost to be deliberately confusing? I was reminded of that yesterday in dealing with an attorney-- who was trying his best to be vague, elusive and deny things he said in the past that I clearly remember being stated. This is not a huge issue; I am frustrated, however, because I sense some dishonesty afloat. If true, it's on him and the consequence of the law of reciprocity will probably apply. My life goes on despite this possible deception and we continue to be very blessed. The moral to this story? Get anything in writing when talking with an attorney about any matter involving real estate or money and their possible liability.
I just watched a really good message from Fr. Cedric called "Forgive and Live." As he pointed out, the Lord's Prayer instructs us to pray "forgive us our sins as we forgive others." Sure, as Christians we all know how much we need forgiveness from God and will even admit sometimes we do others wrong and should ask forgiveness from them. But, what about when people wrong us? Not so easy sometimes to forgive, is it? Perhaps we need to stop and think about the patience God has had for us that has produced the tremendous amount of forgiveness He offers.
