I used to be a hypocrite,
saying God's grace and throwing curse other time,
gossiping about one's disgrace and do the same thing after that,
knowing what is right but hell,
I still do it because well,
"everyone did it too!"
well, I can't say that I'm not a hypocrite now,
perhaps I still am, but a lesser hypocrite (I hope!)
mistakes aren't forgotten easily
stupid, moronic behaviors have consequences that will haunt forever
those that only hurt me (thank God!)
and those that hurt others (dear God!)
So to become lesser evil, I practice the art of "punishment thoughts"
if I did something sinful, I imagined myself being punished by the just God pretty soon
and then, because of fear, my imagination manifested itself in the real world
Sounds too odd?
Here's the thing:
The notion of a forgiving father won't do good for my obedience training
because then I'll let myself go too easily, and I don't like it
who, in all truths, really likes to recite His words and do the opposites later on?
This method of a just God, for some reason, works perfectly for me
I know that I'll get real bad consequences later on if I do something hypocritical
Because sometimes, just sometimes, heaven is a little too far from earth for people to be obedient to the Words
it is so easy to ignore the heavenly consequences
who, in all truths, really thinks everyday that s/he will die tomorrow?
... Ok, before it gets too far I'll stop here
Hopefully this sharing will worth something
