3...2...1...Begin Self Destruction
I could never understand how as humans our natural instinct is to survive but yet we do the stupidest things knowing it's going have a negative effect on our lives. I'm not talking about an unforeseen outcome hear. We do things that we know we'll be sorry for... but we feel the need to do them anyways. These things pop up in all the areas of our lives. In our relationships with others, our daily diets, and in our spiritual lives. It's those words that we did or did not say to a friend or family member that we knew as they left the lips were wrong to say. Or the moment slipped by and we remained silent. It's that donut that we ate after a perfect day of diet and exercise. It's jumping on the computer when we know that we should be opening our Bibles. It's the things that you continue to beet yourself up over even though you know that it wasn't your fault. What is it that causes us to do these things? I think it's selfishness. I think that our need to fulfill that immediate need or want is so great that we tell ourselves "I'll deal with it later" and enjoy the moment. It's the child in us that refuses to grow up. It's the devil whispering his poison in our ears. I would like to say that being aware of these things that I'm going to change my ways but we all know that it's not true. worst of all I know that it's not true. So all I can do is pray. Pray that I'll make the right decisions at the right time.
