Lazaroo – Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Nov 06, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with fresh awareness:

“Don’t you realize that this will end in bitterness?”
(2 Samuel 2:26)

Bitter.

That’s not how I want to end up, Jesus.
It’s not how I want anyone else to end up, either.

What kinds of temptations will I face…

that end in bitterness?

What if to

make my point
get my way
defend myself

I reveal something told to me in confidence?

That might do it.

What if in order to get out of a jam I lie about someone

hurting their reputation
misrepresenting them
destroying their trust in me?

That might do it, too.

What if I become so needy that I steal something

from a stranger
a family member
a neighbor
a friend?

Bitterness is exactly what they’d feel toward me.

But the worst bitterness of all would be the acid eating away my insides

lying there in the dark
knowing I had betrayed You.
