"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.
Given the opportunity, He will trim the unproductive suckers and shape the branches so each one will bask in Sonlight.

New Writer for Our Daily Bread

        Philip Yancey is now writing for Our Daily Bread, and this edition shows his typically fresh approach to a well-worn topic: forgiveness.
        Interesting, that I can characterize the topic of forgiveness as "well-worn," in view of the difficulty today's--and history's--church has had with it. I'm convinced that many of my brethren who claim to have absolutely no issue with forgiveness, have simply buried it with the hope of, "Out of sight, out of mind."
        A buried grudge is not a forgiven one, and it will eventually fester, and erupt into a worse wound than it was originally. Do as the CSI-type TV characters often do, exhume the corpse for a postmortem, and get to the truth before it gets to you.
