Q: How to handle rebukers
Here's some grist for the blogging mill:
(from a blog reader, slightly edited)
This past Sunday I went to church and found myself sneezing, coughing and blowing my nose frequently during the service. I thought about getting up and leaving, but instead just prayed and tried to control my sinuses.
At the end of the service, an elderly lady came up to me and sternly rebuked the error that I had been experiencing. I believe she meant well, but I was taken aback by it.
I was at a loss as to how to respond to her. I said, “Thank you,” and then to myself said, “I think.”
My question is, what is the right way to respond when someone does something like this?
Ha! Thoughts? I have a few of my own, but would love to hear yours first!
