“It has taken me 43 years to confess that I have been embarrassed by some of God’s actions.
In my arrogance, I believed I could make Him more attractive or palatable if I covered up some of His actions.
So I neglected speaking on certain passages, or I would rush through certain statements God made in order to get to the ones I was comfortable with, the ones I knew others would like.
I am just now seeing the ugliness of my actions.
Like the nervous kid who tries to keep his friends from seeing his drunken father, I have tried to hide God at times.
Who do I think I am?
The truth is, God is perfect and right in all that He does. I am a fool for thinking otherwise. He does not need nor want me to cover for Him. There’s nothing to be covered. Everything about Him and all He does is perfect.”
