“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”—-Galatians 6:7
We are not perfect people. Perfection is impossible for us alone. However, we walk through life expecting perfection from others as well as ourselves. When that expectation is not met, we feel betrayed by others and we ourselves feel defeated.
Life is full of decisions. It’s basically all we do from the moment we rise until we lay to rest each evening. We make decisions based off a variety of factors. Our upbringing, lifestyle, morals, situations, past experiences or circumstances all play into the decisions we make. The thing is…all of our decisions have a consequence.
I’ve learned, that if we consider the consequences in the decision making process, it makes it easier to accept the outcome. Most importantly, considering the consequences sometimes helps us make wiser decisions. When the decision we make turns out to be a poor choice, we have to accept the consequence that comes from it. A lot of times, because we are “shocked” by the consequence or not prepared for it, we try to hide the consequence or delay it by making other poor decisions. It ultimately creates a snowball effect of bad decisions which in the end still result in a consequence.
As I stated before, there’s a consequence for every action. If we cannot accept the consequence of the decision we are leaning towards then we should probably make a different decision.
