Have you ever had to be the “bad guy”? You know; the one who has to say what someone else doesn’t want to hear. The ‘dreaded’ unpopular answer, the deal breaking decision. Most of us have likely had to wear the title at some point in our lives.
The apostle Paul often had to do a lot of bad guy stuff; reprimanding, scolding, reminding etc, as did other writers.
Winston Churchill said-You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life
Perhaps so, it doesn’t mean it makes me feel any better. I had to write a letter in response to one my granddaughter emailed me, and for sure it is not the answer she wanted. She and my daughter want to have what basically amounts to Power of Attorney for my handicapped daughter to make medically related decisions on her behalf. I said “no”.
So….I have a heavy heart today. I love my granddaughter very much and it’s not easy for me to deny her anything. I guess, just say a little prayer for me. I know I made the right decision and a little prayer for them, that they will trust my judgment and my decision.
