Re: Need Help Getting A Grip On My Feelings
Thanks to both of you for your replies. Its the company policy that we report anything amiss to our superiors. I was really in a quandary about what to do. My instinct said keep quiet about the bribes since what I know is based on hearsay, but my training says to say something. I will keep quiet since I have no proof. Its almost impossible to avoid hearing gossip, but I'll try harder to tune it out and keep praying for those involved. I guess I'm still pretty idealistic, whenever this kind of thing happens, whether its in the community, at work or at church, it leaves me feeling so heartsick. The fact that this happened between people I liked and respected makes it even harder to bear. Still I know the Lord can take something this awful and make it work for the good.
One other question, in circumstances like this, is it wrong or judgmental to pray for repentance on the part of those involved? Its easy to pray for general repentance for our nation or for the church body; but is it wrong to pray for individuals who are in such open sin? The two seem to have no shame or remorse, on the outside at least its one big joke.
