Err in Judgment
by PamFord Davis

Have you ever discovered, to your dismay, that something was not what it seemed to be?
I have. This is a 'Once upon a time' remembrance....

My engagement was official and my fianc wanted to take me home to meet his Mother and Daddy. It would not be a drive across town, but a drive from the Northeast-to-the Deep South.

He decided to go 'Greyhound' and leave the driving to them. It would be a Thanksgiving holiday trip, giving him the opportunity to celebrate with his family and introduce his future bride.

I viewed different scenery and marked changes in voice accents along the way. There was another first. At a cafeteria-style restaurant, I chose pumpkin pie for my desert. I had a shock.

What seemed, by all appearances, to be pumpkin pie, was in fact sweet potato pie. Things are not always, as they seem. I was dead wrong about that pie.

People can err in judgment on crucial life issues.

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12 NKJ)."

I would say that's an important warning, wouldn't you?

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23 NKJ)." I choose life. I choose Christ Jesus.
