Yesterday I shared a twist on the red pill/blue pill choice. Taking the red pill meant you got to erase all of your past mistakes. The blue one was for $15M.
It was an easy choice for me. I picked the blue pill. My rationale was that I hadn’t made $15M worth of mistakes. Also, I feared a Back to the Future situation. What if correction of a past mistake meant I married someone else or didn’t have one or both of my children. I’ll gladly take the consequences of any mistake if it means I get to keep these aspects of my life.
What surprised me was how many people chose the blue pill. The general response was that we learn from our mistakes and they make us who we are. Of course a few opted for the “do-over”.
Of course this is theoretical but there’s a “purple pill” option. It’s faith in Christ. No, it won’t erase your past mistakes but it will release you from them. It won’t give you $15M or even $0.15. But John 10:10 promises an abundant life. A life of joy that doesn’t depend on money or even a spouse or children. It’s a life that only depends on your relationship with The Savior.
And while I ended on a serious note, I still have to ask, red pill or blue pill? Do over or $15M?
