Back To Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods.

Does he deserve forgiveness? Will you, if you haven’t, forgive him?

Or is he unforgivable? The lying, cheating, dirty, no good scum of the earth. Is that it?

Tempting isn’t it? Difficult, isn’t it? Will we find it impossible?

All things are possible for him who trusts in the Lord. Is that a figment of my imagination, or did I read or hear about this somewhere?

Okay, so here’s my final answer, and it comes straight from Jesus’ mouth, “Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.”

  1. Dear Jeff,

    The thing that I can take from all this is that it isn’t for me to forgive Tiger – whether he has asked for it or not. He hasn’t wronged me. I may be disappointed in his actions – the path of sin he has chosen to go down. But if forgiveness is what he is seeking, then he needs to go to God and to his family.

    You are right – β€œLet he who has not sinned cast the first stone.” People are all standing around, ready to be the first to administer JUSTICE at the drop of a hat. After all, that’s what he deserves, right? And even though we all do live with the consequences of the sin choices in our lives, we would all be the first to beg for MERCY instead of JUSTICE. Thank the Lord for His mercy and that he is, as the Bible describes, longsuffering.

    I guess I wouldn’t make a good lawyer at this moment. I just know I have sinned in my life and will do so again – I am not perfect. I am thankful for God’s mercy and longsuffering with me.


  2. Bob, as always, thank you. Expect my final aha this weekend. You hit it – it’s not up to us to forgive Tiger. The way my warped mind works, that was never the intent from this exercise. The intent is forthcoming. πŸ™‚
