Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: a sad comment


So the other day, one of my fellow co-workers walks up to me. He says he was talking to another co-worker who said this about me:
“He is the only person here that says he is a Christian and actually acts like it. All the others that say they are do not.”
This made me speechless. Not out of pride, or shock, but in actual sorrow.
I talk to a few people at work that say they are also “Christian.” One of them seem to be doing the right thing.
About me? I know I sin. I know I am not perfect. I strive to follow the teachings of the Bible as best I can, but I still fall short.
Yet to have someone say, that I am the exception, on the good side. I would rather be the exception on the bad. Due in part to my failings as a human.
There are many that do not state they are “Christian.”
There are many that actually deny God.
But to be deemed the only one, in a place that has hundreds. This is sad.

  1. Very true sir…“ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”…Matthew 15:8 and Matthew 7:20 “Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them”
    Keep living James 1:22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
