My View on the Burns, Bacsik, Bowen Issue

Shame Mask - Rothenburg Torture Museum

During a recent Spurs game, Mike Bacsik (@mikebacsik) wrote despicable tweets that would make most people cringe.  Today, Peter Burns (@peterburnsradio) and Bruce Bowen (@bowen12) hosted Mike to talk about the situation.  Unfortunately, the discussion between Bruce and Peter turned sour.  Each was passionate about their position.  Mike was wrong, undoubtedly, and some suggest that Bruce and/or Peter was/were also wrong.

I know that I’ve been wrong before in the past, even if it was just once, and I’ve said and done things that I wish I could take back.  I know though that I’ve been forgiven.  I’d like to ask you to forgive Mike and if you think Bruce was wrong and/or Peter was wrong, forgive them as well.  Check out Colossians 3:13-14 (MSG) – 13 Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.14 And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.

One day, I’ll certainly be asking for your forgiveness and I hope you’ll extend it to me.  I look forward to being able to do the same back to you.  It makes the world a better place because love beats anger, hate, frustration, fill in the blank – every time.  So, forgive that person that’s wronged you; show them love instead.  Lead the way and teach your enemy how to forgive.
