Simply Foolish

A man was seen walking down the sidewalk, tossing his car keys up in the air and catching them. After one too many tosses, he dropped the keys and watched in horror as they disappeared through a grate and into the sewer that ran beneath the street.

Those who saw what had happened felt sorry for the man. That is, they felt sorry for him until they heard him exclaim, “Oh, no! Not again!”

It’s not smart to make the same mistakes over and over again. It’s foolish to commit the same sins time after time, hoping that somehow the results will be different this time and that there will be no price to pay.

We need to learn from our mistakes and repent of our sins.

“The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”—Proverbs 14:18.
