Shame

A guy walks in and helps his mom sign in for her appt. Suddenly, a guy in his chair yells out, “Pull up your pants! You’re mooning me!”

The guy at the front desk looks at him and realizes it was him the other person was yelling at and goes, “do you always speak out like that?”

The guy in the chair says, “No, but your mooning me! I think it’s nasty!”

“Are you in the military the other guy asks?”

“No.” Said the guy in the chair.

The other guy pulls his pants up and just turns towards his mother and helps her sit down. He didn’t say anything unkind or gave a mean look. He went to his seat and kept his mother occupied… And ignored the other man. The other man, however, kept looking over and probably felt sorry, but was too prideful to say, “Sorry.”

😦 I didn’t like seeing that. Very immature and inappropriate for a grown man to yell out to another man in public, especially when he’s helping his mom. Such a shame.

Yet it taught me a lesson that although we often get offended in some way, God said to also turn the other cheek:

Matthew 5:39
New Living Translation (©2007)
“But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.”

AND-

1 Peter 2:22
“He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.”

Forgive and forgetting may be tough to do at times, but this situation proved that its as easy as just walking away.
