Life is the art of drawing without an eraser. (John W. Garner, late U.S. cabinet member)
Like words, you can’t look back and change the things you’ve done in the past. You may be able to erase words from paper or delete them on the computer, but you can’t treat life that way. It’s critical, then, that we watch our steps—what we do, where we go, how we behave. We need always to be aware of how we’re living and very careful to conduct ourselves honorably.
We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God (Titus 2:12). We want to live honorably in everything we do (Hebrews 13:18).
