I Won't "Turn the Other Cheek"

    I Wont Turn

    I am not so strong to show my other cheek when I got slapped on my face. It hurts a lot. I just try to hide my other cheek from getting slapped with my hands. However I get slapped on my other cheek also very easily. Teachers pull my hands and give tight slaps on both of my...

    I Never Forget.

    It's not that I won't, it's that I CAN'T. When I am offended or angered by someone, I will remember it forever until I have vengence. Most of the time, I can go without vengence though. But, if I do that, I will always remember the way the person treated me or someone I care...

    That was "good advice"? I don't think so.

    This follows up on my story "What Did Jesus Mean?" which has plenty of input. I thought I'd test the Pollyanna theory of giving more after having been used and abused. My neighbor conned me out of $20 a year ago, saying he'd be back "in 5 minutes" to repay the short term loan...
