Cut-throat: (adj) involving the use of ruthless measures.
Human vice is not nice.
Sin will never actually win.
Mean is obscene.
Most of the end results of our actions are not accidental, but instead, deposits we’ve made which finally produce a dividend.
These deposits could be kindness, creativity, generosity, humor and tolerance.
Such soul-stirring emotions offer remedy.
But we can also deposit disappointment, despair, prejudice, anger, envy and lust.
These pernicious villains always bring about a cut-throat conclusion.
Yet the debilitating devastation left behind is not accidental.
- It’s not because we “lost control.”
- It’s not because we “got pushed too far.”
It’s just that we were not wise enough to know what to keep and what to throw away.
