It’s not a switch…. it never has been.
Choices matter, and sometimes we make a choice that has long term consequences.
In fact we can make a choice faster than we can change its results.
We tend to think that if we make a bad choice that hurts someone that the very next day we can make a right choice and everything will be just fine….
…. there is no greater lie than that.
Our choices are always a part of our future… they are not switches that “turn on a situation” and then when we’ve had enough we just switch them off, (leave it behind, disconnect ourselves from it), only to “switch on” something else, another situation, that isn’t affected by our previous choice.
Instead every decision we make takes us down a particular path toward a particular direction. If that direction is bad and we desire to change … only repentance, God’s help, Time and good decisions will bring us back to where we want to be.
It takes time to change the environment you wish you hadn’t created.
So be careful today with the choices you make….
Before you slam that door, before you say something you shouldn’t or before you make that financial decision…
take a moment and think…
where will this take me?
For once you make that choice…
the consequences are coming…
for YOU have set them in motion.
