Better For It
The day before yesterday, I posted my first blog in three months, and I immediately heard about it from well-meaning followers. Fact is, I was trying to set up a different website and ended up coming back to this one. I think I'm better for the experience. It serves no useful purpose to explain or apologize to anyone but my regular readers. And now I've done that.
Life is a lot like that. People leave a job to try something new, and when it doesn't work out they come back. People start a project and get called away, only to jump back into their mission upon their return. People set out to do something and get diverted, only to get back on track when they come to their senses. Often, those who do that end up being better for it. It serves no useful purpose to explain or apologize to anyone who isn't burdened. If someone needs to clear the air, he should do that.
Sin is a lot like that. People commit to being righteous and honoring God, then get lured into something wrong, dirty, selfish, willful, or downright evil. Hopefully, they realize the error of their way, and repent. Those who do that are often better for it. It serves no useful purpose to explain or apologize to anyone but the Lord who already knows. If that's your case, you should do that now.
