Sin is like one of my favorite poems. I often wonder who is really remorseful…
What would our animal natures allow us to do if there were no punishments or judgments?
Would we still do what was proper and “right”? Or would we be remorseful and repentant?
Children are the realest humans to study for human nature. A child’s face can be smeared
with crumbs, you ask “Timmy, did you eat the chocolate cake?” and the answer is an immediate “No.”
But oh, he reveled and wallowed in its decadence. He savored every nip and bite. He enjoyed
the chocolate cake far better than you would have. See the poem below is that delicious meal you
didn’t finish but saved for later. You thought of it all day or night- how you would wake up
and eat it or top it off when you got home. You open up the refrigerator and it’s gone.
The poem below is the apology every spouse, partner, friend,
room mate, child or family member never dared to say…
Yes I ate. It was good. And I’d do it, again.
This Is Just To Say
