phew, if i had a nickel for every time i justified my behavior lately i would be a rich woman.
rich i tell you.
i behave a certain way (generally sinful) and then have an immediate bout of justifying it. it's become an automatic response.
and i wonder, who am i justifying my behavior for?
God already knows what i'm doing and what i'm up to.
let's just be honest, He doesn't need my excuses.
so why do i feel it necessary to provide myself (and others) with the excuses?
wouldn't it be easier to just change the behavior?
maybe acknowledging it is the first step to changing it.
