One mistake can ruin you

I’m saddened by the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf. It’ll be a while before we can even properly gauge how bad it really is.

I was watching the news last night, and caught a story on the economic impact on BP. Their value has fallen over 50% in just a few weeks. One mistake can ruin you.

This is evident throughout the Bible. This is evident in many people I’ve counseled. Maybe you’ve even seen this true in your own family.┬áThis is why the author of Proverbs challenges us to guard our hearts and eyes.

One lapse in judgment can lead a man to think he is greater than he is, to believe he is untouchable, and to leave him only able to see his kids every other weekend. One wrong decision can ruin families, hurt kids, topple seemingly indestructible Fortune 500 companies, bring down kingdoms, and destroy you.

Guard your heart.
