The other day I think/know I hurt a friend’s feelings. I corrected her in front of others. She talks all the time, and she insisted that she could hear God even when she was talking. I, even after sleeping on it, said to her the next day, what if God wanted to speak through me to her. She would not be able to hear. I know I hurt her as she would not look me in the eye.
Dear Upset Sally,
Do you have any other friends besides these church friends?
You speak directly to her in person and say you are sorry. You look her in the eye, and say you hurt her feelings and especially in the company of others. Do not say you are sorry like those jerk politicians say when they do something like commit adultery or steal money from the Postal fund, and suddenly the press finds out. Do not be a Tiger Woods. Speak from the heart.
Now do five loads of laundry, scrub your toilets, and make a chocolate cake, and be done with it. You just never know. Maybe God did mean for her to hear it.
As always, Radish
