Joyful Exculpation

Avoiding learning traffic laws won’t save you from a ticket. 

When randomly you park your car, the cop knows where to stick it. 

—–   

Imagining infractions keeps some people from offending. 

Imprisoned in their fear of trouble keeps them from attempting. 

—–

The rules we break unknowingly don’t lead to condemnation

Forgiveness is God’s favorite means of joyful exculpation.
