Leave It To God...

Leave it to God to not let me rest in a state of moral superiority. In talking with one of the kids I work with, I was struck by the fact that he invested far more energy in avoiding of the consequences for his bad decisions than in making good decisions in the first place. As I lamented and joked about this phenomenon, God pointed out all of the speeding tickets I'd prayed away, all the prayers that my fast food meals would nourish my body, and all of the prayers that a lottery win would wipe away debt and student loans. I needed a laugh at that moment, not a mirror.
