If you’ve ever seen the movie Napoleon Dynamite,
then you know who Uncle Rico is.
For those of you poor souls that haven’t yet seen the movie,
let me quickly bring you up to speed…
Uncle Rico is a man living in the past…
someone re-living his high school football “glory days”…
remembering the way things were…
wishing they had gone down a different way.
Uncle Rico is in a rut that prevents him from moving forward…
a rut that keeps him stuck in the past…
so much so, that he builds a time machine to physically take him back in time…
back to how things used to be… and it doesn’t end well.
Well, the voice of “Uncle Rico” has been plaguing my mind in recent days.
If you’re living and breathing, chances are good you need to forgive someone.
Chances are also good, you need to ask someone for forgiveness.
So right now, if you can think about someone in your life who hurt you and how that person needs to ask you of your forgiveness, chances are good that you have also hurt them somehow… and that you possibly have some forgiveness to seek out yourself.
