Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 03:24 PM.

Well, most of us know how that turned out!

Sometimes, being told we cannot do something makes us want to do it all the more.

Why is that?

Is it that we don’t like being denied anything, or do we think what we don’t have must be wonderful— otherwise we wouldn’t be told to avoid it?

Quite often, what we think would be great, enjoyable or fulfilling actually leads to devastating and long-lasting consequences.

John 20:29

Jesus said to Thomas, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”
