If you want to avoid being tied up for a while, and serving a sentence longer than the one appointed, then stir up your life mix carefully. When we look back at some of the costly sentences in which we received for making a bad decision, it’s not that we feel unlucky at the time with the sentence in which we caught; but it’s that we feel unlucky at the time because we got caught. When people make bad decisions, they are not thinking that the decision is not going to work out; and when it doesn’t work out, now they want to give it the consideration in which it should have been given before it was done. It makes no difference now to ponder over what went wrong, but it would have made a difference to ponder carefully before it was done. The main reason that so many good people find then selves paying healthy sentences for bad decisions is because the bad decision made was not necessarily a sin at the time. You know that most of your basic Christians as a whole, the regular hard working and caring Christians, are not going to decide to just walk right into a sinful situation. It is going to usually take the help of the long distance last cousin, right before the decision; known as deception, to step in to cover up the sinful parts of the decision. This is why the bad decision can get support; furthermore, a person will usually get too far out on the limb before uncovering the truth that was covered up. The bad decision is not usually a sin in itself; however, all that is following the bad decision is what will parade in the sin. Once the bad decision puts a person out on that limb, then the parade of things to come will march on to the sentence. Father Works With Our Life Mix, So Mix On Carefully.
It is important that we are careful with decisions that are in our power to control; and that we show wisdom with decisions that are not in our power to control. I think back to a time or two when someone withheld valuable information from me concerning an ongoing project, and decisions were made contrary to the information withheld. The parade of things to follow the contrary decisions made led right to a financial sentence that had to be served, or should I say literally compensated. Why was Jesus not an equal chance opportunity giver to all of the Apostles? We know that he had three that went places, and seen things that the others were not made privy: I would have loved the chance to be on the scene at the mount of transfiguration if I was an Apostle. The truth of the matter is that you can’t give everything of yourself to everybody; and responsibility given has to be limited if it is to have accountability. Peter along with the two brothers, especially John at the end; they were given even greater responsibilities as the rock to build the Church on, as well as the protector of Jesus’ mother. These are all decisions that carry a great sentence if they turn out to be bad decisions: I know, we’re talking about the all knowing one making the decisions. We have our own inner circle in which we must trust; however, we do not want to give the same everything to one outside of the circle of trust just because they are kind and nice: kind and nice does not hold up under fire when you are out there on that limb. It comes down to our life mix, and how careful we are to mix it. God, even unto the Father, he will have no choice but to use the life mix that we give him to work out his Will. When it comes to all of those out side the circle of proven trust, don’t feel bad when you do what you have to do: you have to know when to not buy in, and to back it off. We know that Joseph made the right decision to not sin with Potiphar’s wife; and the wife’s false accusations led to Joseph long sentence in jail, God was left to work with that mix. I don’t know if Joseph could have done more to protect himself when Potiphar was away like have an assistant to keep around as a witness; or was jail God’s way in the mix to get Joseph to Pharaoh? Anyway, when we hear that alert signal of trouble first show up; and just like in the movie “the Matrix” when there is deja vu to signal the code is altered, just know that the parade to serving a sentence is not far off: don’t buy in, and back it off now.
