It’s been observed, “Another paradox is that one who wishes to be regarded as learned has to prove himself repeatedly, while the fool can establish his character in a single performance.” Oh how true this is. In a moment of weakness we can wreck our character for a lifetime. However, it is also true that the one who strives to be seen as educated and godly, must keep watch over his actions time and time again. I believe this is why the Bible describes our lives as a walk. When we are following Jesus in our day to day choices we can be perceived as wise. Yet it is those times that we stray off the path that we find ourselves acting foolishly. Therefore, take heart my friends and live life one step at a time. It is usually when we get ahead of ourselves that we have to live with our foolish mistakes.
