if you get caught up in selfishness it’s going to take you down a road that leads to destruction. GOD knows that. you know it too. you’ve seen it happen in other people’s lives. that’s why it’s trash. you’ve seen these t-shirts that people wear that say “it’s all about me.” it focuses on themselves. that’s a trash kind of statement.
here’s another trash statement. you’re going through a tough time and you’re wondering what decision to make and they say, “whatever decision you make, GOD wants you happy. that’s what GOD wants.”
that may sound ok on the surface, but in the end it’s trash. because what it really says is i can do whatever i want because i think that’s what’s going to make me happy and that’s what GOD wants.
listen, GOD wants you happy but HE also wants you holy. HE wants you to be the kind of person HE made you to be. have you noticed that what i think is going to make me happy, doesn’t make me happy. in fact, it takes me in the wrong direction.
just a thought from the front porch…
