Well I finally got here this week! There have been moments where I wondered if I would be able to squeak it in but HERE I AM SHARING MY WORLD AT LAST!!!
Melanie has asked some really deep questions this week and I have endeavored to answer them below. You can see how other contributors worked their way through by clicking the underlined link above.
- You’re walking in a forest and you find a black suitcase. Inside it is one millions dollars and a piece of paper, stained in blood and bearing the single word “Don’t!” Would you take the suitcase home or leave it? Ummm, No! Taking the suitcase is a sure-fired way to get serial-killed! I am not taking that suitcase anywhere. I am hightailing it out of the woods, calling the police, waiting for them to arrive and then I am leading them to the suitcase in the woods. I don’t want any part of a murder suitcase.
- Imagine you lapsed and cheated on your partner. You feel horrible and you know you’ll never do it again, because the feeling is so awful. Would you confess? Wow! Now this is a hard one to answer. I have worked with too many people in just this situation to know that anyone can know what he or she would do definitively. I would hope I have the fortitude to do it myself, but honestly without help few can carry and conquer the fear. I would also say there is no such thing as “You know you will never do it again.” Situations like this are one of the best arguments for building healthy supportive relationships around yourself throughout life. Such Moments need strong friendships to survive in anything resembling health.
- Would you live your life differently if nobody ever judged you for anything you did? I live in the knowledge that I will be judged by God. His mercy covers me and I will be found holy, not having a righteousness of my own but having one given me by my Savior.
- W ould a fly without wings be called a walk? No? What would you call it? Dead!
