Did you know that The Bachelor can be a part of Bible study?
Well I proved today that it's true.
One of the questions we were mulling over this morning was if we had ever had the experience of making someone out to be worse than they actually are. Letting an old hurt grow in your heart over time until the person who committed the offense becomes a monster instead of just an imperfect person.
(Probably doesn't make much sense out of context, but we were discussing Ishmael's relationship with his father Abraham.)
ps. I can't hear the words 'father' and 'Abraham' together without singing the kids song. I thought you would want to know.
Anyway, I couldn't really think of an example from my life.
But I can't stand awkward silence, so if no one jumps in I just blurt out the first thing that comes to mind.
I shared with the group that I may have rushed to judgement too soon about Vienna on The Bachelor. Maybe she just wasn't edited favorably, and surely she must have some good qualities or Jake wouldn't have chosen her.
Maybe I made her into a monster that she is not.
My contributions in Bible Study are always very deep and theological, can't you tell?
And then ladies and gentlemen, I came across this:
And now I loudly proclaim:
I'm off to start a phone chain with the Bible study ladies to tell them I was wrong.
