Day 38: Choice and Accountability
-Taming of the Bronco-
I heard a man who was a WWII Vet fighter pilot, age 93 speak to a group of youth. He was vibrant and strong physically and spiritually. He captured our attention and imaginations with his stories from the war. He spoke of how we each come into this life to obtain a body- which he called the "Bronco" and the test is in taming our Bronco. In other words- learning Choice & Accountability. Letting our appetites and fears rule us it can be like a wild bucking bronco, and all you can do is hold on for dear life. When we learn that we are in charge with our choices and learn how to tame and own up to our choices- we then take the reins and calm the beast and can actually enjoy the ride!
So many in society claim we are victims of our human nature and surrounding circumstances. "Go with what makes you feel good. you're choices only effect you. satisfy your appetites and you will be happy. it's not your fault you are the victim" just some of the lies of the advisory whispered to us.
So, Whose in charge of your Bronco?
