My elder brother-in-law has ALWAYS led his life the best possible way. His talents make others' talents look piddly. His kids are the brightest high-achievers within a hundred mile radius. He has always done things Jehovah's Way and he has an aura of judgement about him. He doesn't mind snooping into other people's personal affairs but he'll make it very clear that his life is none of your business, unless he thinks he sees an opportunity to boast. The Kingdom comes first and where else would he go?
He's old enough to retire. This is pathetic. He needed to borrow $50 yesterday. I don't hold it against anybody if they have fallen on a bad patch in their life. Stuff happens. But $50? For the guy who has always had life by the nuts? Yes, I loaned it to him. If he had asked for $1000, I probably would have found a way to loan it to him. But we'll see how this goes. I may be getting off cheap.
