Staying Good Forever
Every Sunday (EST) in my Google Reader, I get the newest posts on Postsecret.com (PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.)
Today this was one of the post cards.
For all the members of the church who read my blog, I'm curious as to what you would tell this person if it were someone who were close to you, admitting that they didn't believe they could be "good" or, as I'm interpreting it, faithful in living the gospel "forever".
I guess I wonder what the thing or things are that are enticing him/her to think that eventually they will stray... But I guess that isn't really my business anyway.
I would tell them something along the lines of:
We will all screw up. We all make mistakes. But we have to keep going, keep trying to be the best we can be. And in the end... I don't think there will be nearly as many regrets as we imagine there will be. It will be worth it. It has to be worth it. You. Can. Do. It.
