Decisions have consequences. That can be good thing, but at times we end up dealing with life long repercussions. Then we look back and wish our choices had been better.
Whenever we are led or ruled by anything other than the Holy Spirit, we are more in danger of sacrificing our future for immediate pleasures. Appetites are given by God, but they are not meant to dominate us. The Holy Spirit should always be the deciding and dominating factor in our lives.
We endanger our futures when we focus on the temporary pleasures of the present. What are we doing right now that will have life long consequences? Is it worth it? Ask God to help to see our situations from His perspective.
