Sooner or Later.


You can run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time.
Sooner or later
God'll cut you down.


It's funny the things that will reach up and grab a person-

Greed.
LIES. Lies. lies.

secrets.

PRIDE.
Me.

Anger.


REBELLION.


apathy.

hate.
DECEPTION.
despair.
hopelessness.

ANXIETY.
Worry.
fear.

doubt.
denial.


imPATIENCE.



And in the rush to have things happen in our time frame,
In the rush to have things go the way we planned,
In the need to not be wrong,
We get tripped up on ourselves.

The world won't be gentle with you.
And it will surely give you
ample opportunity to create regrets.

But Johnny Cash is right,
Sooner or later,
God'll cut you down.

Luke 15:11-32
