I don’t respect Tiger Woods for his infidelity, but I do believe that he is trying to do the right thing by dropping golf and focusing on his family. He himself called his acts “transgressions”, he knows that weight of what he has done. I definitely feel for his wife and children, but I also feel for him. Sin is eroding to the soul. Both those who have been sinned against and those who have sinned feel the destructive burn of sinfulness.
What angers me is all the conversation about how much money golf is going to lose – and how much money news stations and tabloids are making from running this story. The money doesn’t matter in the least bit. I am flabbergasted that so many people are, at least outwardly, so concerned with the financial aspect of this issue that they are forgetting the hearts and souls involved.
Instead of critiquing him and examining is every actions, let us – especially Christians – pray that Tiger and his family find true friends to rely on, that, in some why, they will find a God who loves them, and that their marriage , which most everyone sees as sacred and right, be restored. At this moment they are both suffering from feeling like unloved beings.
This is a beautiful picture . . .
let us all hope that, despite it being tarnished, this picture can restored to is full beauty.
The restoration of beauty, reconcilation of relationships, and redemption from the bondage of sin are at the center of the Christian faith, so may it be at the center of our hearts and minds.
