BIBLICAL POINT OF REFERENCE:
"I am writing you about these matters, although I hope to visit you soon. But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth. Undeniably great is the mystery of devotion, who was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed to the Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory."
~1 Timothy 3:14-16
I think sometimes we know the answers to questions inside our head, but we don't want to admit that we know them. Say you are in a situation where you are asked to do something that goes against Church teachings, and you can't remember why that thing is wrong, but you know way deep down that it is. Maybe you would still do that thing in that situation, or maybe you wouldn't. But the fact of the matter is, you know that it is wrong. Everyone gets those kind of gut feelings in their lives; call it your conscience, your intuition, or whatever, we all get them. But listening to that voice in your head telling you the right thing to do is sometimes the hardest feeling to have. I like to think of it as God giving me the solution to the inner battles I have with myself, and all I have to do is listen to it. But sometimes I don't, and that can create a world of hurt in a matter of minutes.
When we know that we are doing something wrong, we let the fact that we don't know exactly why it's wrong be the excuse. But again, that doesn't make it alright to do that; it just makes us ignorant to discovering the truth.
My challenge for you ladies today is to recognize the nudge you get when you're in a sticky situation. You all have the power to listen to God, so use what He is giving you to make your decisions. Your Laughing Sister, Callahan Check out the REGRET quotes page for more inspiration!
