If you are familiar at all with the 1990’s sitcom Friends, then you know of the love story between Ross and Rachel. Oh, Ross and Rachel. I watched each show religiously, I am certain, and after ten long seasons, they finally ended up together. The way it should’ve always been in Friends land. What? Anyway, during one of the seasons Ross and Rachel broke up. Rachel didn’t feel they broke up but Ross was famous for saying “we were on a break.” While on this break, Ross was with another woman and it broke Rachel’s heart. As you can imagine she told her friends and her mother. Her mother told her, “once a cheater, always a cheater.” Personally, I think that is one of the most ridiculous quotes ever said. Saying that quote is like saying that just because somebody is or does something once means they will always be or do that same thing. Like, once a teenager, always a teenager. Or once an arrogant jerk, always an arrogant jerk. See what I’m sayin’? My Rant: Like people can’t change. Come on. Are you kidding me? I am SO different than I was in high school…than I was eight years ago…than I was eight months ago. People change. Sometimes it is a good change, other times it isn’t. People make choices that aren’t always the best, they realize it and then decide to make things different. It happens all the time. I’ve seen it. I’ve experienced it. I believe with everything in me that people can change. Our actions don’t define us. We can’t let them define us. We have to let who God says we are define us. I am a child of God. I was bought with a price. I am a co-heir with Christ. I am a friend of Christ. I belong to God. I have been forgiven and redeemed of all my sins. Let’s don’t label people by their past. Let’s call them who they are according to the Creator of the universe.
