I had another convo. The person said something along the lines of do you know how often I’ve done this? The Lord is going to bless me.
They are doing something they have done before but not the way that most of the group they are doing it with is doing it.
It is interesting that they feel they are going to be blessed now because they are trying based off what they did in the past.
Don’t get me wrong. I think they will be blessed for their effort. Part of the modification is necessary based on what they have going on. Buuuuuuut the other part…judgmental a bit cuz Ion necessarily agree. But it isn’t my situation.
It just made me think that sometimes we expect to be blessed in the future because at some point in the past we did things right even if we are not currently doing them right. I don’t think that it works that way.
But hey, I could be wrong. It just seems odd that we would expect a blessing now and today for obedience yesterday that we are not functioning in today. I know we reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7). Buuuut. That way? I dunno. Kanye shrug…
