For example, Your thought to be angry about someone does not necessarily mean you will finally express it, which means you will not action it. But then you could think it, express it and not action it. The beauty of it is, God gives us an opportunity to reconsider before we take the second step. Its always a process of these three steps and each step we have the power to choose.
Whatever we choose will ultimately decide who we are choosing to be!
– how is this thought serving me?
– will it make me a better person?
– will it create love for other or not?
The outcome of your answers will tell you the type of person you are choosing to be at that moment!
Again, God’s grace is forever extended to us. Even when we have made choices that not serve us,or make us better people or don’t serve the greater good of showing kindness, love or compassion to others; we always have an opportunity to choose again. Isn’t that wonderful?
Deut. 30:19b ‘So choose life in order that you may live…’
