All in Forgiveness

From Hugh Hefner to Mother Teresa

A lot of people think following God has to be all or nothing, right up front, and they try to go from a life like that of a lifelike Mother Teresa overnight, and when they fail in their drastic transformation in the short amount of time they thought it would take they get discouraged and give up and mostly return to their old lives. Righteousness is a journey, not a destination, and it took a lifetime for Mother Teresa to get to where we view her as a saint.

Why I don't trust God, part 3: I have failed so many times.

I am sure I am not alone in this, but sometimes I think because I have failed so many times in the past that God won’t give me any more chances and there is little reason to even ask for help. At a job you can only fail at so many projects before you have effectively killed your chances of ever getting that promotion, and likely even jeopardized your chances of retaining your current position. Even the most patient people will give up on you eventually if you keep messing up every time they give you another chance.
