Scott and Margarette married yesterday. Amy, Will and I drove up for the wedding and had a really great time.
One of the highlights was serving as a groomsman. Scott's friends started to become my friends as we pranked, prayed and partied the evening away. During the evening, I encountered the title question.
One of the aforementioned groomsmen, a handsome and single fella, started talking to a bridesmaid on the edge of the dance floor. My instincts told me he was about to ask her to dance when ... out of nowhere ... another bridesmaid joined their conversation, talked for a few moments, then led the first woman away. My new friend flopped down in a chair next to me and confirmed my suspicions ... he was, indeed, "making a move."
What's my role in all this?
I could have intervened: asking the interloping bridesmaid to dance, inserting myself into the circle and providing conversational ballast, creating a distracting scene and giving my groomsman buddy one more chance to ask the woman to dance. You know, wingman stuff.
Can a Christian be a wingman with a clear conscience?
