We had an assignment to write an essay,
My Most Embarrassing Moment—
It’s been forty years, but I’ll always remember Bobby’s paper. He said he was “downtown” on the square when he felt a scorpion crawling up his leg. His football buddies all agreed to form a circle around him so he could lower his jeans to see if it was indeed a scorpion. They formed a human wall around him and down came the pants. After a moment’s careful inspection, Bobby looked up, and saw his friends— some already a half block away!
So what shall we do? Shall we whine? Shall we become sour and embittered? —quit walking with brethren? Maybe we even quit the Lord? Or, —shall we just “pull up our britches” and travel on? We might cry awhile, but then forgiving is in order. Remember, we also have caused disappointment. Lean even more on the one who said: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb. 13:5).
