It’s Thursday! One more day to the weekend! Which aside from Sunday, which I look forward to, means nothing to me lol because I have to work on Saturday… but moving on…lol
You ever been speeding and then you see the speedometer on the right side of the road displaying for all to see how fast you’re going? Typically when we see it we begin to slow down (well I do).
Or when we’re speeding and we see a police officer drive by in the opposite direction, we slow down right? How do you feel when you see the officer make a U-turn coming back in your direction?
It’s funny how it’s okay for us to do something wrong, but we don’t see the consequences of our actions until they’re staring us in the face. From a criminal justice perspective this is called hedonistic calculus.
Hedonistic Calculus is basically pleasure vs. pain. Even though I know it’s wrong, how much pleasure would I get out if it vs. what are the possible consequences for my actions. Then, do I risk it based on the the reward factor. We make tiny decisions like this every day and sometimes we don’t even realize that we do.
So my question is, would we do things different if our sin was staring us in the face? If we could see the very thing we’re doing, when we’re doing it (like our mirror image), would we continue our actions? Or would it be too much to handle? Forcing us to see our true selves.
Just a little food for thought… anyway, I love you all and I leave you with this…
James 4:17 NLT
Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
