Reuben Morales could easily be my alter ego but he is a much a more perfect me and loving, compassionate me--he's probably also, undoubtedly, much more handsome, and, as a fireman, much more "in shape".
I'm surprised, you seem to have great insight into how we sensitive, evangelistically striving Believer males feel and act.... You've given me many things to consider, even reconsider through Reuben's personality. At present, as I'm my most severe judge, I'm now learning, through Reuben, to "rest in the Lord". I'm already carefully on guard to avoid evil, aware of where my weaknesses are and attempting to follow my Lord in all prospects I encounter and into which I must move.
