There is nothing worse than knowing that you are impeding your own salvation. When you deliberately commit a sin, knowing beforehand that you are going to do it, and making the excuse that it is an inconsequential matter and that in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter if you do that action.
It matters to God.
Because I chose to do something I knew was wrong, and even though it wasn't an important matter- it involved convenience and simplifying things- it was still wrong.
These are the things that bring a stop sign to your road of progression for your soul.
Thank you Lord, for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Thank you for continuing to give us second chances.
Thank you for your Divine Mercy.
