If we are really, brutally honest with ourselves, there can be no exceptions to being a good and decent person.
The longer and more sincerely we do this, the higher our batting average.
We will fail, but less and less often.
Until one day, never.
The temptation to make exceptions. How often does it happen? Daily, weekly, monthly, never? Or maybe all the time?
There is an exception to every rule, or so it is said.
Maybe we become the exception when we no longer are willing to make (hypocritical) exceptions.
(repeating photo caption: Incremental progress adds up over time. So does incremental decline.)
Oh, you know what, there are probably exceptions to when and whom we get to forgive.
Is that it? Is that what you think?
PS. Do you sometimes wonder if God ever has a tough time deciding?
