“He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”” Mark 7:20-23 NIV
A good friend of mine was making a hypothesis, a possible explanation, for the actions and ultimately abandonment of her ex. Her theory was that her ex “didn’t experiment enough when he was younger, and now in his 40’s he wants to do what he didn’t do back then”. Makes sense, right?
However I can make the opposite argument with the same outcome. What about those who did “experiment” and still want to be a POS? What happens to those memories? Is there still the possibility of comparing? Perhaps it isn’t much about our history but about following our passions, following our heart.
Today we beautify the heart as this can’t-do-anything-wrong part of our body, but last time I checked if I truly, and I mean TRULY, follow my heart I’d be broke, kicked out of my house, and my daughters would have zero respect for me.
How about following commitments? It isn’t catchy but it is the stuff respect is made of. In my limited experience following God, every day leads us towards the common good, positive legacy building, and peace of mind.
If I could give you a hug, hi5, or fist bump from here I definitely would. As long as you don't mind a couple typos here and there, you're MOST welcome to check in, drop a comment here and there, and make yourself at home.
