Hey Hagen, how about going to a conference with me next month in New Orleans? You could just chill out around the hotel while I am at the conference or you could go to the conference with me if you like.
Hagen, “What is the conference about”?
It is about learning how to witness to people in a loving and caring manner. It is also motivational and up-lifting, things of which I am trying very hard to accomplish in my walk, talk and attitude with the Lord and with people.
Hagen, “You need to learn all that. You are always pointing fingers.”
What do you mean? I only asked if you wanted to take a trip to New Orleans. I did not say you needed it, I said that I need to attend it. You never take anything that I say the way it is intended. I think you feel I am being judgmental because you feel conviction when I am around. I don’t have to point a finger, as you say I do, or say a word, you just feel guilty because you know I am living right and you are not. I have never been that direct with you and if that is pointing a finger then I am sorry you take it that way. You do not understand what I am trying to communicate to you. I have just always tried to set the right example and show you the way to the Cross. I am sorry you have a hard time understanding that I love you and want to see you in heaven one day.
Yes, I was hoping for the opportunity to help you understand what God says, not I, about the things you are involved in your life. New Orleans would be the perfect location for us both to clear up this lifelong animosity you seem to have towards me. I have only wanted what is best for your life and that is what God wants for you also. You do not need fortune tellers to tell you how to live. That is what God’s word is for if you would only read it and listen to Him. I do not have the power to make you feel conviction. If you feel that way when I am around you it is the power of God’s Holy Spirit. He alone has that power.
Please try to understand me better.
