TO SUSAN: (RIGHTEOUSNESS) REALLY? SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT AND CAN DO NO WRONG! I’M SORRY THAT THIS HAPPENED TO YOU! YOU HANDLED IT SO MUCH BETTER THAN MANY DO! TO SIMPLY TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS, AND KEEPING CALM IN THE MIDST OF THEM YELLING AT YOU AND SHOUTING OBSCENITIES! THIS IS THE SAME BEHAVIOR THAT MANY IN THE WORLD, IF THEY WERE CUT OFF IN TRAFFIC, WOULD BE GUILTY OF SOME SORT OF ROAD RAGE OR WORSE! SO WHAT DID THEY SAY WHEN YOU TOLD THEM OF JESUS AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS? EXACTLY, WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES! I’M GLAD THAT EVERYONE IS ALRIGHT.
