Day 200

Two-faced – insincere in dealings with people, especially by being outwardly friendly, but secretly disloyal

It’s 8: 36 PM on day 200 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a bread and jam sandwich  for breakfast, reply  to an email about my campaign – if all goes well I should be getting a donation  pretty soon 🙂 – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign  for a few hours – no luck – listen to music, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, go to physiotherapy – it didn’t  that bad considering I hadn’t exercised for the past three weeks – I was SO happy 🙂  – watch TV,  feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – filled with tomatoes and chili   for dinner and tweet about campaign some more –still  no luck.

As you know I try very hard not to live my life in judgment of others but today when I heard that my uncle was dropping my grandma off at our house – yet again – because he didn’t want to take her to the prayer that he and his family go to every month I thought to myself with OUTRAGE why do these people even go to prayer they are an embarrassment to God and in that moment I realized that being Christian was less about what you did in the church and more about what you did when you left the church. Would you do something that you know to be evil just to protect your reputation?

  1. Nisha, yes, it’s scandalous behavior. On the other hand, we all make mistakes.

    Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t be open to correction -especially from those near and dear to us. So the best thing is to gently share your concern with your uncle and let him know how his behavior makes you feel.

    But do give him a chance to change his behavior. It might take time.

    Would you do something that you know to be evil just to protect your reputation?

    Yes, I have done evil for sake of my reputation, pride, and many other reasons. And I regret every evil that I have done. The fight against evil, however, is a fight fraught with much failure, shame and despair. But, by the grace of God, I’m never going to give up. I keep on hoping.

    Please pray for me and your Uncle.

    • Thanks for the advice Stan but I highly doubt my uncle would be open to correction from me … he barely talks to me I get the feeling all he sees when he looks at me is my wheelchair which is his loss 🙂

      Yours truly,

  2. Print out this blog post (and the comments) and give it to him. Send it in the mail. I’ll be praying for you to make headway in this intimate endeavor.
