I want to share with our Hartselle Enquirer Readers this week a news letter written by Shady Grove Baptist Church pastor, Brother Tom Campbell and it reads as follows:                                                           It was a typical day at the store located in the forks of the road in our community and the bench in front of the establishment was lined with old timers exchanging news and tales of days gone by. Down the road there came a sound of an approaching automobile going much faster than was safe for that little paved road. The vehicle got closer and closer and the crowd became more and more concerned until it whizzed by leaving a blast of grit and debris that settled on the crowd. One of the old timers rose to his feet, shook his fist, and called out: “Slow down your darn fool!” Turning to the crowd he demanded, “Who was that idiot?” One of the younger men replied , “Uncle Zeb, that was your nephew, Ned.” A moment of silence suddenly settled over the onlookers. Zeb pushed the cap back on his head and muttered, “Well, maybe he wasn’t going as fast as I thought.” 1 Corinthians says that love believes the best in all things. Love does not count or keep score. 1 Peter tells us to keep loving each other because love covers a multitude of sins. Perhaps if we chose to see the failures and shortcomings of our neighbors through the eyes of family it would mitigate their severity and foster forgiveness.
