I love that Sophia Petrillo. She is a mess! The way that she can come back on her roommates is priceless. And she gets such a kick out of it too! I can see the look of satisfaction on her face every time she “gets” someone with her venomous tongue.
The nature of the show is set so that no one really gets hurt by Sophia’s comments because, most often, they don’t really pay her that much attention. The issue is that there are too many of us who are taking cues from Sophia and passing out tongue lashings every time we get a chance. But when we do it Sophia’s way, which may feel good and just in the moment, we miss out on the opportunity to be a part of the divine.
On today’s segment Beth Moore tells a very intriguing, encouraging and heart warming story that you must hear. She points to the ultimate example of loving kindness and how God leaves no stone unturned when it comes to taking care of us and showing His loving kindness toward us. And I know what she’s talking about. I’ve been able to be a part of some of that myself within the past few days. It’s amazing.
I really love me some Sophia but the thing is, when I “get” somebody, I don’t really feel as satisfied as she seems to do when she does it. I need some real tools to fight with out here in crazy land! I need some help and sustenance for those times when I really want to give someone a piece of my mind (knowing full well that I need every ounce of brain matter that I have left) at the expense of my peace of mind.
Lord, please show me more of your loving kindness so that I have more to give away as I make myself available to be a part of your divine plan for my life and the lives of people around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
