I was remembering today on something that happened when I was a youth. It was my fault. Sometimes I find that even though I know I’m forgiven, I still struggle with forgiving myself. Or, there is still a bit of sadness attached to it, even if I have finally let myself off the hook. When we are in the moment, emotions can run high, or selfishness can rule, and there is little thought given to the repercussions of our choices. It’s wisdom to pause and be intentional whenever possible. Some of the long term consequences to our choices are weightier than we may be able to see in the moment.
There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. – Proberbs 14:12
