It’s not always a plot and they’re not always out to get us. Sometimes it helps when we just admit we still have the capacity to make profoundly bad decisions. Oddly enough, we are not the center of the universe, and our decisions do affect others. Innocent people do get hurt when others make selfish and self-centered decisions.
Yet God holds the issue of choice to be holy, and therefore he will not interrupt our utterly sacred ability to make choices – even when they’re profoundly wrong, even when they’re dangerous, and even when they hurt innocent people.
So please… let’s be careful out there.
