Choices And Consequences

If you really are honest men, choose one of your brothers to remain in prison. The rest of you may go home with grain for your starving families.
~Genesis 42:19


“Life is all about making choices, always do your best to make the right ones, and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones.”
~Source Unknown

my two cents worth.

Life is about choices, we all make them every day. Some are big and some are small. Some are between right and wrong. Some are between better and best but all choices have consequences. I live with regrets due to bad choices. I don’t think you will find many honest adults that do not have some regrets linked to choices they made. Take Josephs brothers in the scripture verse above, they regretted the way they treated Joseph.  A man in the process of divorce told me, “It is my fault Bro. Jack, all my fault.” I looked at him in unbelief and said, “It is never all one person’s fault.” He said, “In this case it is, I made a bad choice.” He was right about one thing, some divorces happen because the decision to marry the person in the first place was a bad choice.

 I know a woman who got to church, I think she sang in the choir; another lady looked down and said, “Do you know that one of your shoes is blue and the other black.” She made a bad choice and it had an embarrassing consequence. She thought for minute and then said, “Oh, I have another pair at home just like theses.” There is a world of difference between picking out the wrong outfit and sleeping with someone else’s wife or husband, whatever the case may be.
A man came to me several years ago and told me he was going to divorce his wife for a younger model and I think the idiot wanted my blessing. He said, “David did it and God forgave him. If He forgave David, He will forgive me.” I went into orbit, I said, “Maybe you need to read your bible all the way through and check out the consequences that David suffered for his foolish decision.” You cannot steal a man’s wife and then have him murdered without grave consequences and if you think otherwise, you are a fool. Hey, you are not an exception to the rule: that kind of twisted thinking is what got David in trouble. You roll in the hay and you will pay just like David: God may let you live but you will wish you were dead before all is said and done.
  • YOUTH go canoeing on Friday
  • BLOCK PARTY brain storm yesterday. Mass visitation has been changed from August 2 {Saturday} to August 6th {Wednesday night}. No final decision on cokes…May switch to Pepsi. We are shopping for the best deal.
  • June named our dog Lizzie. She is a loveable creature but did not keep the groundhogs out of the corn. I think she will do better once she gets acclimated.
