Stupid Things We've All Done

Ever siphoned gas out of the car for the lawn mower and get a mouth full of gasoline?

Ever seen anyone put kerosene on an abscessed tooth?

Ever clean your brown carpet and accidentally used the bleach bottle instead of stain remover?

Ever sniffed an unmarked plastic bottle only to discover it was full of muriatic acid?

We've all made bad decisions that we had to pay for or fix.  What do you do? AKA - How to fix stupid.

Proverbs 28:13 Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

Ok - I might be taking a little license here, but follow along.  
- If you don't admit that you are doing something stupid - you are doomed to repeat yourself.  This goes for sin too.  But notice what Solomon says here.  You will not prosper.  There it is!  It's in the Bible.  Stupid is expensive. 

- Solomon didn't say that if you stop doing stupid you will get rich.  He said you will obtain mercy.  The last thing you want after doing something questionable is to have someone pointing out your stupidity. You want someone who will extend mercy to you.  Be merciful to someone today.  

- Confess and forsake.  Let me reword that for you.  Admit it, quit it and forget it.  Ok, maybe not the best counseling advise I have.  But Solomon said it.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, don't let me do stupid today.  AMEN
