‘I was afraid you’d tell me not to do it.’

The American Better Business Bureau reported the case of a school teacher who lost her life savings in a business scheme that was actually a scam. Eventually she reported it to the Better Business Bureau who asked her why she hadn’t come to them earlier and checked this scheme out before signing up. Her answer was, ‘I was afraid you’d tell me not to do it.’ The folly of human nature is that even though we know where the best advice is to be found, we often don’t go there because we don’t want to hear what we suspect they may tell us.
I guess that’s what the Bible means when it says, ‘There’s a way of life that looks harmless enough; look again – it leads to perdition Those people appear to be having a good time, but all that laughter will end in heartbreak.’
