We must make lasting change or we'll end up being lifetime cry babies.
God is so awesome, isn't He? He loves His people. Yet we must not take His grace for granted. It could run out you know? I'm not saying we won't fall short. I'm just saying we have to make lasting change with the intent to do better the next time.
Then do better, because we are better.
Otherwise our mentality is that: we slipped out of that one. We're feeling good now -- real good, whew we got out of it. Then we forget about God. Then we turn around and boom, we're back to square one. The same trouble and issues are back and they're even worse this time. The process starts again. When are we going to learn?
Would you agree?
