It’s not about the can or can’t. More of the want to or not. We tend to hide our “i don’t want to” under the facade of an “i can’t “. So instead of making the tough decisions to be a better person we come up with all these excuses why we can’t do it. I guess we all just need to be more honest rather than live in denial, trying to deceive ourselves that all these circumstances are hindering us—-when in fact the biggest hindrance is our own self.
At the end of the day we are who we are because of who we choose to be. We can’t go on living our life blaming our parents, our family, our school, our friends, our classmates, our boss, our officemates, our country or even God for why we turned out to be who we are. Yes our environment does influence us to a certain degree, but you still have a choice if you will let the circumstances dictate your outcome or if you will face the circumstances and take away only what is beneficial to making you a better person.
CORNERSTONE: foundation stone, the 1st stone set in construction which is very important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone. Jesus is the cornerstone of the church. You and I as members of the body of Christ are being built together. Since Jesus is the cornestone we all fall into place in reference to Christ. This is exactly why a church can never truly grow if Jesus is not the center of it.
We need to remember how filthy we were, what we looked life before Jesus came into our lives. And even if we were already His GOD still bought us. God looked at us even in our filth of our life, He points to us and says I will by you back even if you are rightly mine. God paid the price FOR YOU. For ME. God loves you. Please get that!
