Trappings of Free Will
The consequences of free will…
We have speed limits that suggest how fast we should drive. We have warning labels on products to help us understand their intended purpose. We even have instructions on other things to help us use them correctly, like “rinse, lather, repeat.”
Even though we are free to do what we want, ignoring these suggestions can lead to consequences.
It’s the same with our free will.
While we can choose to behave in any way we like, we are still accountable spiritually and morally.
I have made enough poor choices in my journey to learn that I GET what I GIVE.
These days I try to follow Spiritually based suggestions, instructions, and guidance in an effort to align my will with God’s instead of doing my own thing.
How’s it working out for you?.. Check your experience…
“Wasn't it because self-reliance failed us?” Big Book pg 68
Lord, let us enjoy the blessings and grace of seeking Your will and not be blinded by the illusions of self will, AMEN.
