Like so many, I’ve read the stories about the Duggers. I’m sad for the victims, for their loss of privacy, for their life changing pain.
But I’m also sorry for those of us who continue to place people on pedestals.
We. Are. Sinners.
I am not excusing any one. Not. One.
I am stating a truth.
I am beyond tired of people insisting on elevating humans to godly status.
Every single one of us either:
Has done something
Will do something
Or is in the middle of something
that we do NOT want known.
Please. Please. Stop putting people in places we do not deserve.
We know 10% about folks. If that.
Pray for yourself. Pray for others.
But please, please stop being surprised when someone does not live up to your expectation of holy and good.
We are fortunate if we can be that 10% of the time.
