Mean Girls

The Esther Bible study I am going through was great this week! The video time was about mean girls. I loved/hated that video.

I loved it because, as usual, Beth Moore was funny, honest, and a wonderful conveyor of God's truth.

I hated it because I have been that mean girl. My girls have encountered those mean girls. My girls have probably been those mean girls out of my sight. I hated it because, though I can stop my mean girl times, my girls have a lot of living yet to do where they will come across more of those mean girls.

What is that about? I am so devastated when I am confronted with my own sin...yuck! It's bad enough when my sin is/was something that was more private in nature....but when it's something that has effected others...something that has hurt others....something that might keep coming back up in others' minds long after it has happened...OUCH!!

If you are one to whom I have been mean...I sincerely apologize! I don't want to be that person. I don't want my daughters to be, or be around that person. I don't want my daughters-in-law to have to deal with that person.

That one was good too on mean girls. I have learned so much from this study. And yes, I have been a mean girl too and have come into contact with some mean girls also. We live and learn and thank God daily for his forgiveness and grace huh! Oh I'm so excited you are doing the Esther book....I hope you love it as much as I did!!!

it's a great study! you will love it every week... we have one more week to go and it has been so much fun and i have learned so much too. For me it's always easy to point out those who are mean to me but what an eye opening that week was for me to remember that i am many times a mean girl too! we all have to work at it with God's help, there is just no other way!
