It’s funny how you can invest so much into a person only to see the seed shrivel up and die, as if it were never alive. It’s heartbreaking to give your all and find out in the end your all was just not enough. It’s troubling to realize the one you love will never walk back into your life, because this time they are gone forever.
How many times do you look inside yourself and evaluate who you have offended? It’s always easy to point the finger and slander someone else’s name. However, when was the last time you clearly evaluated yourself and realized, “I was wrong, and they were right?”
Sad to say most people never come to that realization, and once they do sometimes it‘s just too late. It’s easy to shed a tear because someone has did you wrong. However, can you remember the last time you cried because you offended someone else?
Where’s the remorse?
The biggest form of deception is self-deception. Our own arrogance can cause us to dig our own grave. A grave filled with denial, self-pity, and pride. Your wounded body lying their hoping someone will come and rescue you from the grave and overlook your faults. They stand in faith hoping that you will change your ways. If only you’ll be spared another
day of restoration, and grace.
Who will come and lift you up out the grave? The person you kicked the most? The person you slandered? Or will it be the person you didn’t appreciate?
Just be careful who you mistreat and take advantage of. They can be the very ones passing your grave as you are slipping down into the abyss. Will they reach out to grab you or reach out to push you?
Once again, be careful.
