Big Huge Colossal Stupid Mistake

Big Huge Colossal Stupid Mistake

Big Huge Colossal Stupid Mistake

I have driven all my life… I’m 47 years old…
I have my CDL and can deftly back an 18 wheeler into wonderland’s rabbit hole to deliver some mad hats…

The other day I was driving my car through the Blakeney Shopping Center… I go there almost everyday… and I just wasn’t paying attention and straight up ran through a stop sign I’ve stopped at 100 times…

I almost t-boned a lady… and she WAS NOT HAPPY…
I immediately began pointing at myself and mouthing “My Fault” … “My Fault”…
She wasn’t sure what to do… I was absolutely admitting my guilt at almost ruining her life.

2 Things:
1)  After decades of living for Jesus… it doesn’t take much to really mess up your witness.  One Big Huge Colossal Stupid Mistake… and you could really botch things.  Yet… when we look in the Bible, it seems like most of the characters did.  That is scary… but it also screams GRACE.
2)  When something is my fault… I simply need to say… “My Fault”… “My Fault”… and all of us need to accept that others are not perfect and offer them grace…  the same grace we will want when we really run that stop sign ourselves.

We are all Big Huge Colossal Stupid Mistake prone…

So let’s give Grace… let’s receive Grace… let’s be Grace prone!

Be like a Berean!
Mark
