The reason why one hates taking exams is that he forgets that it’s a means of measuring how much of what was taught has he been chewing well and swallowing wholeheartedly.
Instead, he sees it as an addend in the equation for the supposed equivalent of his intelligence in digits - his new definition.
Now the glamour of one’s shoes for tomorrow rests on the sparkle of a mark printed on factory-processed leaves in a font half the size of a fingernail.
He is determined to sweat and bleed for the mark,
and is inspired to cheat for his future.
He forgets to study.
Now imagine if every heart knows God.
The video would be be an imagination and an imagination only.
Or maybe not, because the video would be unthinkable.
Today, not every eye sees grace and not every mind rests in the peace salvation brings.
Because not every soul has experienced God
There’s a reason God gives us tomorrow everyday.
Imagine if we work everyday.
Two people denied Jesus the night before His death: Judas & Peter. Both wept for their mistake.
What was the difference between the two?
Judas turned away from God & judged himself. Peter repented, went back to God, & let Him forgive & restore him.
Never underestimate the power of Jesus to forgive & restore.
God never changes his mind about the people he calls. He never decides to take back the blessings he has given them.
— Romans 11:29
I’m never throwing a cigarette butt on the ground again. Holy shit.
YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THROWING YOUR CIGARETTES ON THE GROUND ANYWAYS
omfg poor baby
I’m so glad this post exists. I took ecology in high school and apparently a lot of animals are attracted to the smell of cigarettes and they eat them whenever they can find them. Sometimes they’ll even wander onto roads at night if they smell one and they’ll get hit by cars doing so. And they can’t digest them. The cigarettes just sit in their stomachs until they run out of space and then they starve because they always feel full. I don’t understand why people can’t just put their cigarettes out and then toss them in the trash bin or keep them in an ashtray in their cars until they get home. Is it really that hard?
this makes me so sad
I just thought I’d add something: over the summer I was involved in a beach cleanup and just by myself I picked up 123 cigarettes in an hour. And I was doing this with a group of 25 people. Its it honestly that hard to throw away your cigarettes??
