The godly despise the wicked; the wicked despise the godly. Proverbs 29:27 NLT
When I was up to no good, the last thing I wanted around was some “goody two-shoes.” My sister fit the bill most of the time.
I couldn’t stand her! She was always in the right place at the wrong time for me. I never got away with anything.
Examples are abundant, but not necessary…I’m sure I share company with some whose past attitudes and behaviors are just as well forgotten and forgiven.
The other side of that coin, however is the frustration felt by the likes of my sister who are simply abiding by the rules prescribed by those in authority so it might go well with them.
As an adult, with a family…children and a wife, I admit my struggle. Sometimes it’s hard to see beyond the madness when another with ill motives seeks to impose “unjust” demands on the innocent.
What I have learned thus far from living on both sides of that coin is…no matter what side you are on, you think you are right and the other is wrong. And fuss as you may, until they are ready, you, nor they, will change sides.
