Manager’s Memo 01-26-2018
I’m beginning to despair they will ever enforce the new cell phone and texting law in Texas, since I still see it every time I’m in my car. I despair because in the last week, I’ve seen police officers in Keene, Cleburne, Joshua and Burleson on their phones as they drive beside me. The capper was this morning as I followed a Johnson county deputy as he ran a red light in downtown Cleburne, while talking on his phone. There would have been red lights in my morning commute I’m guessing were our roles reversed.
As I begin to work up my self-righteous indignation, the words of Paul to the Romans echo in my head. I do not understand what I do. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. How often have I caught myself demanding justice for others and expect mercy for myself? All too often, I’m afraid.
So today, once again, I’ll lay aside my self-righteous stones to try and pry this ten foot beam out of my own eye.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
