“A Little Bit Wounded”

January 25, 2013

“When you get to be my age, everyone is a little bit wounded,” Katie Couric says in a recent interview.

Seems to me that’s true at just about any age.

You and I are  “a little bit wounded,” and so are the people we find aggravating and frustrating.

As a prescription, Katie goes on, “It’s important to handle people with care.”

Sounds familiar.  Only Jesus goes one step further and in Luke 6:31 tells us to “Treat others the way you would like to be treated.”

After all, “everyone is a little bit wounded.”

  1. One of the things learned in grief and bereavement support education is that everyone has had some loss. Loss is equated with wounding. Even a loss, the ones not equated with death, not seen as most as a loss, is grieved. When I was in elementary Sunday school, one of the first lessons was the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I’m not sure if it is the massive reduction in Sunday school attendance or parenting missteps, but I miss when everyone related to others in that manner.

    It may feel like wounds, but it is just one of my daily companions saying: You are not alone!” Paul counted his suffering “JOY” to share in a small part what Jesus went through for us. I’m glad it is a small part – not all that Jesus went through. The hardest wounds for me is the knowing that my children hurt and there’s not much I can do, but hope for a better day for them. Our problems did not come to stay – they came to Pass! <
