No, not my shirt, but I’ve done that before. You know, half-asleep, or in the dark, you slip your shirt over your head, and it just doesn’t feel right. And then you realize, Goofy... you put it on backwards.
Just today, after a very long time, I figured out I was doing something else backwards….in my thinking, in my heart.
I discovered yet another way I get offended.
‘Bout time, you say.
Well, thankfully, He isn’t through with me, yet! I’m still learning.
I discovered that I expect other people to treat me the way I would treat them. I know. A revelation, huh?
When someone, especially someone I expect to know better, does or says something to me that I would NEVER do or say to them, it is offensive to me. I take it personally. I get a little bit indignant.
Self-righteous of me, don’t you think?
You know the scripture. “Treat others the way you want them to treat you.” (Luke 6:31 NLT)
I just can’t find the one that says “Others will treat you as you treat them.”
If you find it, will you let me know?
Otherwise, I think I’m just going to have to let Him change my backwards thinking, my backwards heart.
And stop being offended.
