Today's jealousy is tomorrow's temper tantrum. Today's bigotry is tomorrow's hate crime. Today's anger is tomorrow's abuse. Today's lust is tomorrow's adultery. Today's greed is tomorrow's embezzlement. Today's guilt is tomorrow's fear. Today's thoughts are tomorrow's actions.
Could that be why Paul wrote, "Love...keeps no record of wrongs" (1Cor. 13:4-5)? Let trash on board, and people are going to smell it. The troubles for the Pelicano began with the first shoveful. The crew should have turned it away at the gate. Life would have been easier for everyone on board if they had never allowed the trash to pile up.
Life will be better for us if we do the same. We can stick with our stinky cargo. And drift from port to port. But why would we? Let the Pelicano have the high seas.
Our Captain has better plans for us.
