Frank bit the side of his cheek. "Pastor Ed, I haven't hurt my wife; I don't have an anger problem."
"Hmm." The pastor paused for a second. "Then why is your wife saying these things? You seem to be happily married."
Frank rolled his eyes. "I don't know; these accusations are out of the blue."
The pastor smiled. "If you have a problem we're here to help you."
"Thank you Pastor." Frank started to get up from his chair.
Pastor Ed pulled out a piece of paper from the bottom of a stack on his desk. "Now that you're here, I've been going through our records, and you still owe us fifty dollars for the men's retreat."
Frank sat back down a glared at the pastor. "Fifty dollars, I paid that off months ago."
The pastor frowned. "We never received a check."
Frank's face started to turn red. "I know I paid you."
"I'm sorry but our records indicate we didn't receive a payment."
Frank hit the pastor's desk with his fist. "I gave you a check!"
The pastor grinned. "Frank, you don't need to get so upset, it's only fifty dollars."
"I don't owe you any money!" Frank stormed out and slammed the door.
Until now, at church Frank appeared to be a Godly Christian at church, but at home he was a different person.
You hypocrite! First, take the wood out of your own eye. Then you will see clearly to take the dust out of your friend’s eye. Matthew 7:5 (NCV).
It doesn't matter what out fatal flaw is. We need to admit it and deal with it so that our walk and talk match. We may be the only Jesus people see.
Dear Lord, help us to be the same person we are at home as we are in public. Please help us to walk the walk. In Jesus' name, Amen.
