Choose Your Own Adventure

You are walking in the park, and all of a sudden three men jump out of the bushes and tackle you.

They start punching you over and over.

Then one of them grabs a branch and starts hitting you with it.

Another pulls out a knife and starts stabbing you in the arms and legs.

They drag you to the middle of the park, and prop you up on a bench.

A crowd gathers to watch.

You are beaten, bloodied, and embarrassed.

One of the men then falsely tells the crowd that you were a criminal ... and proceeds to shout out a list of horrific things you supposedly did.  He then pulls out a gun and points it right at your head, asking you if you have any last words.

Choose your answer:
a)  Why did you do this to me, I don't even know you?
b)  I (expletive) hate (expletive) all of you (expletive).
c)  I didn't do any of those things you said I did.  You have to believe me!  I swear!
d)  You better shoot me or I will kill you.
e)  I forgive you, and I ask God to do the same.

God Bless.

Well I hope I would have enough faith to choose the last one and follow the example of our Good Shepherd.
Thanks for another thought provoking and soul searching post, Michael. God bless.

I would probably be too unconscious to say anything.

Why can't I be like Superman and beat the lot of them?

I doubt that I'd choose the last option. I'm not that good!

God bless.

I pray that God would give me the GRACE to choose e because that's what it would take to choose it! On my own I'd probably choose a - I have a habit of asking why all the time.

God bless :)

wow! this is a thought provoking post because I, like everyone who has posted here, would like to think I would chose the last answer but none of us will ever know for sure unless confronted with the situation. I would also like to think I would be the person who would stand up and yell This is wrong!. Leave that person alone! As a group we are are all so powerful We can change the world and make it a much better place. god bless you Michael. I hope you have a good week.
