Waiting. Praying. Hoping. For any sign of REMORSE.
Heavy-hearted. At our regroup/rethink/resurrection of PRIDE.

Our tactics in the face of Gods uncovering of our sins?
We will be: gentle, calm, disarmingly charming
We will be: vague, redirect,
We will: quote Scripture, plead the 5th
We will: appeal to your senses (do I look like I am…to you?)
(Notice: senses – not your good sense)
We will: admit nothing (don’t ask, don’t tell!)
We will: point you to your own sins
We will: answer your question with a question
We will always be: super friendly

Our playbook taken from the best the world has to offer, the Prince of Darkness.

But God Says, “But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know:and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written. And this is the writing that was written, mene, mene, tekel, upharsin. This is the interpretation of the thing:mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians” (Daniel 5:23-28). “And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed” (Ezekiel 20:43).

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
