When I get caught doing something dumb or hurtful, I have a simple, two-step approach to dealing with it:
1. Deny everything. No matter who saw what, admit nothing.
2. Appear to apologize (“I’m sorry that you were offended.”), still admit nothing (“Mistakes were made.”) and never ask for help (it makes it look like you did something that you need help with).
Too bad it doesn’t work.
So what does my brilliant two-step approach have to do with Sunday’s Old Testament reading? I am exactly the sort of person that needs to hear Isaiah's approach. More on this tomorrow.
