Last night Seth took me to Sedalia for dinner and a movie. He decided to take me to the Wheel Inn Drive In diner.
They are famous for their guberburgers which are hamburgers with melted peanut butter on them. I was a little nervous about trying it but I thought "why not?" It is actually really good! I didn't put anything else on there like the lettuce or tomato but the peanut butter and the hamburger were surprisingly really delicious together!
When we got home we were greeted with some not so nice neighbors. I won't go into detail about what they said but it really hurt my feelings. I guess being in the ministry I should prepare myself for ridicule. That doesn't mean it still won't hurt though.
That got me thinking about how much impact our words can have on others. One thing that really caught my attention when I first started blogging was the encouragement that was given to each other. However recently I have seen a few bloggers use their blogs as a way to hurt others. If there is a problem with someone, writing bad about them in public isn't going to solve anything. It just makes it worse and can really hurt them. Using hurtful words is only a reflection of one's true self. Instead of putting others down when we disagree with each other why don't we take care of the problem in private and move on?
