Abuse Alert

Baby Blues - abuse alertThis is funny…in a comic strip, but not in real life. Yes, there is freedom in choice, but not in their consequences. Yes, we will be forgiven for our sin, but that doesn’t mean the consequences of that choice come rent free here on earth.
This is an excellent example of abusing, not using, God’s grace. 1 John 2:1 states, “If we sin” notwhen we sin.” We don’t make mistakes because we know we will be forgiven. We strive to exercise the truth in each situation we face knowing that if we fail, we’ll be forgiven.
When we decide to fail, we are purposefully hurting ourselves as the consequence of that choice brings shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, broken relationships, etc. with it. These consequences all stem from the choice to disconnect from the very source of everything we need – Jesus.
I encourage you not to live with the mentality of this young man. Getting closer to Jesus should always be our goal while using, not abusing, grace as the tool to do it.
