Why Are Second Chances So Hard 2 Give?

August 3, 2009


HipHop Fam,

Why are second chances so hard for folks to give? I mean shouldn't people be allowed to start over and rejoin society after they've admitted to their mistake, paid for the offenses and "did time" so to speak?
Take our long lost loves Michael Vick, Chris Brown and Plaxico Burress. Each in their own right were beast of their professions and each have made ridiculous mistakes. But honestly, isn't that what a mistake is...something we've done that's ridiculous? The Merriam-Webster.com/dictionary states mistake as "a blunder in the choice of (something)...to be wrong."
These men are being boycotted, black-listed, and publicly humiliated still for making mistakes that they have admitted to making, asked for forgiveness and paid or will pay the appropriate fine for. Yet because they're famous they are still paying the price.
Isn't it what God wants: us to forgive, not forget, but to forgive and love as if (they hadn't) committed the transgressions? I know we are not all perfect, and I can still even learn to forgive more; so here is my chance. Are you down?
It's just Mia and these are my thoughts.
Namaste

  1. I think this says it best

    Luke 6:37
    Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
