*Parental Discretion Advised.
It is good to see what someone with real talent can do when great opportunities are given to them instead of me. Bruce Nolan.

When a small child is kicked in the shin by another kid, she knows the right thing to do is to not retaliate but take it to a higher authority. Funnily enough, though she knows it won’t help,she’ll still throw a fit and cry (and maybe kick back). Because whether you know the right response or not, it hurts just the same.
When the child has grown up, she still knows if she gets kicked in the shins by life that the answer is to turn the other cheek. She knows the right response:
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Matthew 5:44
She knows to take it to a higher authority:
The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. Exodus 14:14
Why then does she continue to cry and throw a fit knowing it won’t make a difference?
Because sometimes your brain and your heart cannot see eye-to-eye.
Because even decades of salt later, it still hurts just the same.
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Ephesians 4:31
