HARD KNOCKS!

Prov 26:27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

This verse reminds me of a saying I have said or have heard often in the last week or so…

You made your bed now lie in it…

I dont like owning up to the stupid crap I do and neither do other people…but we will still have to deal with it no matter if we own it or not. God has set up life just so that you will always have to deal with the consequences of your actions.

We may walk in denial…

We make blame someone else…

We may weep, cry, whine and beg but we will still deal with it one way or another.

Here is the flip side….and maybe God does this too…but when He does it I call it grace.

When we mess up and He gets us out of it!! I believe that our heart motive at the moment of our stupidity has something to do with this or just how quick we are to repent….

As a parent or a friend or a family member for that matter we sometimes sheild others from there consequences. we roll that stone out of their way..and while this is good in the way of forgiveness and forbearance…it may just roll right back on you.

sometimes we are just helping to create a problem. The problem of harder knocks later…

Take your knocks…fess up to who you are…what you do….where you are…and BE REAL!

Let others take their knocks…be honest…and dont act like nothings wrong when you are not FINE!

ok I am done yelling at ME! :0)

Lord thank you that you can get through to our thick headed skulls and teach us to be honest and loving at the same time but speaking truthfully with love to us so that we will do the same. AMEN!
