You Asked My Opinion of Him

The publication OUR DAILY BREAD related a story about Robert E. Lee. In honor of Veteran’s Day, I thought I would pass this story of one of America’s greatest soldiers.

During the Civil War, General Lee was asked to assess a fellow officer. This particular officer had been offering very negative comments concerning Lee.

Lee’s response was to state he found the officer’s performance very satisfactory. This answer created confusion for the questioner.

“General, I guess you don’t know what he’s been saying about you.”

Lee replied, “I know, but I was asked my opinion of him, not his opinion of me.”

Matt. 6: 12 Forgive us for doing wrong, as we forgive others. CEV
