John 15: 19 - "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."
We have all read about the supposed alien bodies held in Hangar 51 in Roswell, NM. I read the following article online, and wondered if they were teaching the locals how to boast their economy.
"To drum up business, a Roswell, New Mexico, car dealership hired a direct marketing firm to mail out 50,000 scratch-off tickets with one grand prize of $1,000. The dealership got the publicity it craved when a typo resulted in 50,000 $1,000-grand-prize winners instead."
We don't always get the publicity that we desire - often in this world when we follow the teachings of our Lord and Savior, the world misunderstands us. And, when it misunderstands us - it looks for ways to discredit and undermine us.
Sometimes, when we seek to do the right things, we are not shown in the best of light. Sometimes our attempts to do right - don't. We need forgiveness - and those around us also need forgiveness. Today, when something doesn't end up right - forgive.
