Not Too Late




As a teacher, I have spent a lot of time considering how people learn. There are environmental factors like temperature and noise. There are presentation factors that capture or repel attention and focus. There are factors that are specific to the student such as family life or what someone had for breakfast that morning.


As someone who routinely crammed information, I often thought it would be amazing to be gifted with innate knowledge of everything I would ever have to know. The angels have that, and I bet it was quite a time-saver. Angels were created perfect and complete. There was no experiential growth needed. The more I thought about, though, the sadder it sounded.


As a person, I learn and grow from the moment I blinked into existence to the moment my soul makes its journey home. I have the gift of making choices and learning from those choices every moment of every day in between. I can make bad decisions without knowing they are bad and then make good decisions because I know they are good.


The angels never had the opportunity to change their minds. The bad angels were bad forever because they chose to be bad once, and they weren't quitters. People have the gift of reconciliation. I can mess up over and over for a lifetime because I just can't seem to get it right, and then when I finally get it right, the Lord God, Creator of the Universe throws a party.


All because I had to learn it all the hard way!


Thus says the Lord God: If the wicked man turns away from all the sins he committed, if he keeps all My statutes and does what is right and just, he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of the crimes he committed shall be remembered against him; he shall live because of the virtue he has practiced. Ezek: 18: 21-22
