Sorry, Mr. Mayor

For the past several days I have been rather harsh with the mayor of our fair city.

This morning I was teaching Sunday school. My class and I were studying the commandment to love your fellow person as yourself in chapter 19 of Leviticus. My students explained to me that loving your fellow person meant treating him or her as you would wish to be treated. As they were explaining it, I realized that I have not been showing love to Mayor Wilder. I certainly wouldn’t want someone to treat me as I have been treating him.

So, Mr. Mayor, I am sorry. I will try to dialogue with you in the future in a more civilized manner.

Even a Maven must learn from his students.
