I couldn’t contain myself at the last instance of my wife’s email. Let me lay down the context. After repeated attempts to make contact with my children and finally I have been asking her to send me a picture of my kids, several times over, I get this reply and and I became livid with rage and so I replied back with contempt.
Since the text is small, here is the text version of it
As I read your emails I was reminded of 2 Corinthians 12:9-10. You probably already know, but I thought I might share it with you anyhow.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
Please send Mummy my regards.
My reply to my wife:
Why do you invoke the name of GOD and use scripture as a crutch to justify your actions. These verses, relates to the people who are suffering for Christ, not to the people who are suffering the consequences of their unjust actions.
It’s close to a year now…you still haven’t send me even a picture of my children. Stop being so narcissistic, Just don’t reply to my mails if you don’t even have the basic human courtesy of honoring the needs of a father. I need to see at least a picture of my children . What kind of a cruel being are you ?
“Please send Mummy my regards.” and stop the pretense, Need I send pictures of the bite marks you inflicted on my mom? And I will never pretend to like your mom, after all that she did/said when she came to India (the last time around). I hope she catches gonorrhea in her throat because I hear she is making another trip to India.
You and your whole ilk are a sham!!!
With great disdain and pretend regards,
P ( why do you bother addressing me as Acha, I like people calling me that name if they really love me )
Not exactly a great retort or Christ like , but I just cant stand people who quote the scripture, to justify their actions.
Any advice is welcome!!!!
Update: After I wrote this reply, I felt like an immature child…. But I didn’t know what else to tell her. I am not even asking for contact, just a picture of my kids…. Why are people so cruel???
